The U.S. Department of State's Performance and Accountability Report for Fiscal Year 2006 (PAR) provides program results and financial information to help Congress, the President, and the public assess the Department's performance relative to its mission and stewardship of financial resources. The PAR also provides readers a sense of the U.S. Government's highest priorities in the conduct of U.S. foreign policy, and the Department's strengths and challenges in implementing programs that pursue the President's foreign policy agenda.

As part of the Department's annual planning cycle, the Department sets specific, outcome-oriented, measurable criteria for self-evaluating its performance under a strategic framework established in the Department's Joint Strategic Plan with USAID. The FY 2006 PAR reports on the Department's successes, performance shortfalls and management challenges as measured against the FY 2006 Performance Plan, which the Department developed jointly with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID.) The PAR also provides the Department's FY 2006 financial statements and other information pertaining to the Department's financial management.

The PAR satisfies reporting requirements under the following legislation:

  • Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act of 1982
  • Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990
  • Government Performance and Results Act of 1993
  • Government Management Reform Act of 1994
  • Reports Consolidation Act of 2000
  • Improper Payments Information Act of 2002

The Joint Performance Section

The PAR's Performance Section, developed jointly with USAID, is organized to provide easily accessible, results-oriented performance information on select measures published in the Department and USAID's FY 2006 Joint Performance Plan. Performance measures reported in the PAR are owned and managed separately by the Department of State and USAID. Information on resources invested to achieve the joint strategic goals of the Department of State and USAID was derived from the FY 2007 International Affairs Budget Request ( and the FY 2006 Department of State and Foreign Operations appropriations acts ( See the Introduction to the Joint Performance Section for more details.
