The September 7, 1993, report of the National Performance Review (NPR) contains 130 major recommendations
affecting governmentwide management systems such as budget, procurement, financial management, and personnel.
Separate accompanying reports delineate these recommendations, breaking them into 430 specific action items. Now,
three years later, agencies report that 38 percent of these action items are complete, 49 percent are in progress, and
the remainder are on hold or not making expected progress. Following are highlights of these governmentwide system
reinvention efforts. Additional information on the status of these recommendations may be found on
NPR's World Wide Web home page (http://www.npr.gov).
