The Office of Evaluation, Performance, and Reporting (OEPR) strives to enhance and expand NIH’s efforts in monitoring the progress of its programs, policies, and operations. OEPR collaborates across NIH to develop resources and tools to strengthen NIH’s capabilities in generating performance information for decision-making and assists NIH staff in identifying strategies for tracking progress toward stated goals and priorities. OEPR also coordinates NIH-level performance reporting activities, such as those in support of HHS’s implementation of the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act.
Recent Legislation for Performance Reporting
On January 4, 2011 President Obama signed the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010 (Public Law 111-352). The new legislation expands upon the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993 and largely focuses on increased transparency, improved efficiency, and enhanced accountability of the federal government.
