ABSTRACT

Evidence-Based Policymaking: Survey Results Suggest Increased Use of Performance Information Across the Federal Government, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 12MB]

From the Highlights: "The GPRA [Government Performance and Results Act of 1993] Modernization Act of 2010 and the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 included requirements to enhance federal efforts to develop and use performance information and other evidence in decision-making. Both acts include provisions for GAO [Government Accountability Office] to periodically report on their implementation. This report assesses the extent to which (1) federal managers' reported use of performance information changed in 2020, and (2) selected leading practices and data-driven reviews were associated with greater reported use of performance information."
