The President's Management Agenda (PMA) is the President's strategy for improving the management and performance of the federal government. Each quarter, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) releases an executive scorecard that rates agencies' progress and overall status on initiatives under the PMA. OMB uses a color-coded grading scale of red, yellow, and green to rate agencies' progress and status based on OMB-established criteria. For more information on the PMA and the executive scorecard, please visit www.whitehouse.gov/results/.

The Department has made substantial progress on each of the five government-wide PMA initiatives, as well as on two additional initiatives for which State plays a key role. The following is a brief overview of the Department's overall PMA progress:
