The President's Management Agenda (PMA) is the President's strategy for improving the management and performance of the federal government, with a focus on results. Each quarter, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) releases an executive scorecard that rates agencies' progress and overall status on PMA initiatives. The scorecard employs a color-coded grading scale of red, yellow, and green commonly used by businesses today: Green Green for success; Yellow Yellow for mixed results; and Red Red for Unsatisfactory.

A summary of the Department's FY 2006 Fourth Quarter Scorecard is provided below. For more information on the PMA and the executive scorecard, please visit www.whitehouse.gov/results/.
