This issue brief provides guidance on what it will take to develop a first-class performance management system that allows states to collect and report accurate data. It provides recommendations to help federal, state, and local agencies ensure that their performance management systems support accountability and can help them manage their programs. It also provides guidance to help federal and state labor and education agencies develop and implement the new systems to generate quality performance data at a reasonable cost.

In preparing this issue brief, we draw on lessons learned from the implementation of performance management systems for other programs, including the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, the Department of Labor’s common measures, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and several discretionary and nondiscretionary Department of Education programs.
