Twenty-five percent (25%) were not met, and 7% did not have enough data available to assess progress or no reporting was expected for 2009. FY 2009 represented an increase in the number of measures met from FY 2008 (63%). Other highlights include: (1) Sixty-six (66%) percent of the outcome-based Strategic Targets met their FY 2009 commitments. This was a slight increase in the percentage of Strategic Targets met in 2008 (57%). (2) Seventy-one percent (71%) of the output-oriented Program Activity Measures (PAMs) met their commitments in 2009.
