Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA)
The Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA) was enacted to hold Federal agencies accountable for achieving program results; to improve internal management, program effectiveness, public accountability, and delivery of services; and to provide information on program effectiveness and efficiency.
