PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT COUNCIL

The Performance Improvement Council (PIC) is excited to join the Administration in releasing the President’s Management Agenda. The agenda lays out a long-term vision for modernizing the Federal Government in key areas that will improve the ability of all agencies to deliver mission outcomes, provide excellent service, and effectively steward taxpayer dollars on behalf of the American people.

Who We Are

Performance professionals are catalysts within their respective organizations for creating a performance management infrastructure that drives improvement and sustainable change

 

What We Do

We create opportunities for government employees to learn from breakthroughs achieved elsewhere and 
to help solve complex challenges through collaboration

Our Projects

  • The Performance Management Line of Business (PMLoB) is an investment by agencies to jointly contribute to the creation of Performance.gov. Performance.gov shows progress on the Administration’s efforts to create a government that is more effective, efficient, innovative, and responsive. The PIC is the primary business owner of Performance.gov, working with agencies and OMB to develop its vision, create requirements, and track its use. 

  • The federal performance framework has three primary types of goals: Cross-Agency Priority Goals, Agency Priority Goals, and Agency Strategic Goals. Cross-Agency Priority Goals are a limited number of Presidential priorities areas where implementation requires active collaboration between multiple agencies. PIC provides tools, collaboration opportunities, and space to improve the process of setting, planning, and achieving goals.

  • One of the PIC’s benefits to the government is its ability to convene and facilitate conversation on cross-agency challenges and opportunities. Each year PIC provides a variety of forums for performance management professionals to deepen knowledge of the federal performance framework and sharpen performance improvement skills.

  • The PIC holds occasional Speaker Series to provide Federal performance professionals an opportunity to learn from experts in the private sector, state/local sector, academia, or agency peers and gain insight about successful approaches that are being implemented elsewhere.
