OMB’s Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) is used by agencies across the Federal government to assess program performance and to drive a sustained focus on program results. A key component of the President’s Management Agenda, PART assessments review overall program effectiveness, from how well a program is designed to how well it is implemented and what results it achieves. PART results are used to improve program management and to ensure the most effective and efficient use of taxpayer dollars. Since 2002, the Department and OMB have used PART to review a total of fifty-one programs covering State Operations and Foreign Assistance. The chart to the right reflects the fifty-one programs assessed between 2002 and 2008 grouped by their PART ratings. For additional information on PART and these detailed assessments, please visit http://www.expectmore.gov/ or refer to the FY 2008 Annual Performance Report at http://www.state.gov/s/d/rm/rls/perfrpt/2008apr/ on page 9.
