The Barack Obama administration added to its portfolio of accountability websites with the introduction Thursday, Aug. 25, of Performance.gov.
Performance.gov was created last year but was previously only accessible to agencies for internal sharing of data and best practices. Now this information is available for the world to see.
Some of the data presented on Performance.gov is available elsewhere on other federal websites. For example, under Performance.gov’s “technology focus area,” the management metrics for the federal government’s IT projects come from the IT Dashboard website.
Two months ago the White House launched its Campaign to Cut Waste, in what Obama called an effort to halt “stupid spending.” The administration ordered agencies to freeze all new federal websites and review the necessity of existing ones.
Evidently, Performance.gov made the cut.
