In Hot Water on the Hill
ongressional leaders aren't giving agencies good grades on the strategic plans they're developing under the Government Performance and Results Act. As of June 24, only NASA's plan had passed muster on the Hill.
Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, and Senate Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Fred Thompson, R-Tenn., released Congress's assessment of agency strategic plans at a hearing on Tuesday. Their assessments are based on reviews of agencies' draft plans by House and Senate GPRA teams.
