1 The committees with primary jurisdiction over the GPRA, per se, are the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs and the House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight. However, each "committee of jurisdiction" within the Congress (including the relevant authorizing committees and subcommittees and the appropriations subcommittees) will be reviewing and providing oversight of strategic plans, annual performance plans, and performance reports, developed pursuant to the GPRA, as well as annual budget submissions, with respect to the agencies within their jurisdiction.
