performance plan is an annual report prepared by each agency that includes the agency's goals, needed resources, and an explanation of the way in which the agency's budget request will help it achieve its goals. These plans are required under the Government Performance and Results Act.
A written or electronic document that contains at least one, and generally three to five job objectives and associated contributing factor(s) for each job objective.
The performance plan identifies annual performance benchmarks of the operating unit. Meeting benchmarks, or the planned levels of achievement for a given year, are considered important steps toward ultimately achieving the ten-year performance goals identified in the Strategic Plan.
