Below is a year-end summary provided to senior managers of the Department's performance relative to the Chief Financial Officers (CFO) Council financial metrics. Because of the unique aspects of operating in both a domestic and overseas environment, the Department adjusts these metrics where appropriate to reflect a measure for domestic operations and a separate indicator for overseas performance. A good example of this would be Percent of Vendor Payments Made by EFT where the domestic percentage target would be higher than the overseas target to convey the differences in the overseas banking systems ability to handle EFT transactions.

For FY 2006, the Department's financial metrics improved to green in one category and remained constant in the others. The Government-wide metrics are as of June and July FY 2006.
