ABSTRACT
The Department of Labor, which had a budget of $34.6 billion and 16,700 staff in fiscal year 1998, seeks to improve working conditions, advance opportunities for profitable employment, and protect workers' retirement investments. With such a broad mandate, effective oversight of Labor is as challenging as it is important. To help address such challenges, Congress passed the Government Performance and Results Act, which requires federal agencies to develop strategic plans that lay out their long-term goals and their plans to achieve them. This testimony discusses (1) Labor's progress in meeting its strategic planning responsibilities under the Results Act and (2) its progress in addressing some of the problems with its performance data that GAO identified in its audit work. GAO also briefly describes the budget framework and some of the issues involved in tracking and using different budget-related data.
