Annual Performance Report / Plan
The Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 DOE Annual Performance Report / FY 2018 Annual Performance Plan contains details of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) program performance, showing the historical targets and results from FY 2012 through 2016 and performance targets for FYs 2017 and 2018 for the Department’s annual performance goals.  It also fulfills the statutory requirements in the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993 and the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010 related to production of an annual report on past program performance and an annual performance plan.  Performance targets for FY 2016 were revised from the FY 2016 Congressional Budget Request to reflect changes due to enacted appropriations.  The Consolidated Appropriations Act was not available when the Department of Energy developed the FY 2018 Congressional Budget.  Therefore, FY 2017 performance targets reflect the P.L. 114-254 continuing resolution level annualized to a full year.  FY 2018 performance targets reflect the FY 2018 Budget Request level.

2013 Energy Department Federal Program Inventory
Per the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) Modernization Act, DOE's Federal Program Inventory (FPI) is part of a Federal-wide program list intended to facilitate coordination by making it easier to find programs that contribute to a shared goal. The FPI is also intended to improve public understanding of Federal programs operations and linkages to budget, performance, and other information.

GAO High-Risk Improvement Plans

Plans address:

  • conducting energy-related research and development and the management and protection of key assets—such as the Strategic Petroleum Reserve—that are vital to the nation’s energy and national security;
  • maintaining the safety, reliability, and physical and information security of the nation’s nuclear weapons stockpile in the absence of clear Department of Defense requirements and with an inefficient and outmoded nuclear weapons complex;
  • sustaining the relevance and effectiveness of DOE’s nonproliferation efforts;
  • addressing the continued and related problems of DOE’s contract administration and project management, especially for DOE’s large and complex projects; and
  • addressing the department’s human capital challenge of developing and retaining a skilled workforce capable of overseeing these projects.
