The GPRA Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRAMA) (Public Law 111-352) provides enhanced performance planning, management, and reporting tools that can help inform congressional and executive branch decision making to address significant challenges facing our nation. If effectively implemented, GPRAMA could improve information sharing and coordination among federal agencies while helping address issues that hinder the government’s ability to address fragmentation, overlap, and duplication. For information and resources on GPRAMA requirements, see table.
