Obama Admin. Launches Performance.gov Website To Track Waste

No, it doesn’t track Obama’s golf handicap, the number of times Joe Biden sticks his foot in his mouth, or how much public money Michelle Obama wastes on vacations. From Government Technology

The Barack Obama administration added to its portfolio of accountability websites with the introduction Thursday, Aug. 25, of Performance.gov.

The website is designed to highlight government efforts to cut waste and improve efficiency. The site organizes content by eight areas of focus and by 24 Cabinet-level federal agencies.

Performance.gov was created last year but was previously only accessible to agencies for internal sharing of data and best practices. Now this information is available for the world to see.

And how’s that working

Some of the data presented on Performance.gov is available elsewhere on other federal websites. For example, under Performance.gov’s “technology focus area,” the management metrics for the federal government’s IT projects come from the IT Dashboard website.

OK, so, the website provides duplicate data? Seems…..wasteful.

    Cant be efficient spending if it doesn’t point out wasteful spending over and over and over and over again.

    Hey, you wouldn’t think there was some political motive in this would ya?

    An accountability website?

    How about: The Buck Stops Here.

    There is no accountability in Washington. Only excuses.
