Linking Performance and Budget: A Framework and Current U.S. Practice

Philip Joyce, Professor of Public Policy and Public Administration from George Washington University presented to the April ICGFM meeting in Washington to standing room only. The American government experience provides very good insight to any government considering improving outcomes through performance management. The performance review of government projects by the Bush administration has resulted in significant budget changes. Nevertheless, there has been resistance from Congress who are more concerned about outputs than outcomes. Dr. Joyce believes that performance management has achieved a high momentum in the US federal government so “performance is here to stay” regardless of who becomes President in 2009.
