Paul Posner testified before the Senate Budget Committee Task Force on Government Performance on October 29, 2009. The hearing explored opportunities for improvement to federal program evaluation and performance initiatives and provided updates on current executive branch efforts.
The Senate Budget Committee is responsible for drafting the annual budget plan for Congress, monitoring action on the budget, and recommending changes in the budget process for the federal government. The new Task Force on Government Performance will assist the Committee in its monitoring and oversight capacity. Also, the Task Force will examine current federal program measurement systems that have been designed to ensure that the policies are implemented efficiently and achieve the intended result.
Dr. Posner told the committee, “Your decision to create a Task Force on Performance, chaired by Senator Warner, marks an important step forward for this committee and the Congress as a whole in integrating a performance perspective into the budget process.”
