Abstract For more than a decade, internal and external studies have called for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to "manage for environmental results" as a way to improve and better account for its performance. The Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 requires EPA and other federal agencies to prepare performance plans containing annual performance goals and measures to help move them toward managing for results. These performance goals and measures are used to assess an agency's progress toward achieving the results expected from its major functions. This report (1) determines the extent to which EPA's fiscal year 2000 performance goals and measures focus on end outcomes, intermediate outcomes, or outputs; (2) identifies any challenges the agency faces in developing additional performance goals and measures that focus on end outcomes; and (3) describes the initiatives the agency is taking to address any identified challenges.
