Performance Plans for FY 2003 and 2004 and Performance Report for FY 2002

The Fiscal Year 2004 President's Budget Request for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) incorporates the annual performance plan required under the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA). The Fiscal Year 2004 performance goals and measures are detailed in AHRQ's performance plan and are linked to both the budget and to the Strategic Plan of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Performance targets in the plan depend partly on resource levels requested in the President's budget and could change based on congressional appropriation action. GPRA requires that HHS plans and budgets be accountable for program results. The intent of the Act is to improve program performance by considering performance information in decisionmaking and by involving our partners and stakeholders in accomplishing program results.
