Management Reform: Completion Status of Agency Actions Under the National
Performance Review (Letter Report, 06/12/96, GAO/GGD-96-94).
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the completion status
of 380 National Performance Review (NPR) recommendations that NPR
claimed were completed as of September 7, 1995.
GAO found that: (1) as of September 1995, NPR classified 380, or 32
percent of the 1,203 action items, as completed; (2) as of January 1996,
294, or 77 percent of the 380 action items, had been verified as
completed; (3) of the 86 action items that could not be verified as
completed, 66 items were either partially implemented or some action had
been taken; (4) there was no sufficient information available to make a
determination on 20 action items; (5) the 27 action items classified as
other were properly implemented as required, but implementation had not
been completed; and (5) of the 1,203 action items needed to implement
NPR recommendations, 24 percent have been completed.
