GovExec Daily: Don't Ignore Government Performance Metrics

Shelley Metzenbaum joins the podcast to discuss why more people should pay attention to performance reports.

Everyone wants better performance out of the federal government, but few pay enough attention to metrics like those found on Performance.gov. In fact, the federal government released quarterly performance updates for agency priority goals just this past July, but it was largely ignored. Why don’t more people pay attention to government performance metrics?

Shelley Metzenbaum was the founding president of the Volcker Alliance. Before that, she served as former associate director for performance and personnel management at the Office of Management and Budget, where she was responsible for setting and implementing the Obama administration’s approach to improving the performance of federal programs. She joined the podcast to discuss her GovExec post headlined “A Missed Opportunity: The Problem With Ignoring Government Performance Information.”
