Government Performance and Results Act

The Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993 requires Federal Government Agencies to consider how to measure their performance and use those measurements to make improvements to their programs. The act also requires Agencies to set goals, measure performance, and report on their accomplishments. We accomplish this through BOEM's Strategic Plan

The Plan identifies six goals to help the Agency achieve its mission. The goal directly applicable to environmental performance is “Minimize Impact on the Environment.” BOEM evaluates effectiveness of existing mitigation measures, implements an environmental performance data verification and clarification process, and publishes environmental policies and procedures to prevent or minimize adverse impacts to the marine, coastal, and human environments.
