The President's Management Agenda
What is the President's Management Agenda (PMA)?

In 2001, President Bush challenged the Federal government to make itself more efficient, more effective, more results-oriented, and more accountable to the citizens who pay taxes and benefit from the programs and services government provides. The President recognized that "government likes to begin things – to declare grand new programs and causes and national objectives. But good beginnings are not the measure of success. What matters in the end is completion. Performance. Results. Not just making promises, but making good on promises."

Since 2001, the President’s Management Agenda has become the framework for organizing the Department of Energy's efforts and focusing on the bottom line. Spurred by the President’s leadership, our 116,000 employees and contractors have transformed the Department from an organization generally thought to be one of the government’s worst managed agencies, to one of the very best.

The President’s Management Agenda has become the Department of Energy’s own Results Agenda. Management improvements are making a difference where it counts most: in carrying out the Department’s mission to help protect America’s national and economic security.

Energy, Labor, State and Social Security are the Most Successful
