Abstract:

As you requested, we reviewed the U. S. Department of Agricultures USDA fiscal year 2000 performance report and fiscal year 2002 performance plan required by the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 GPRA to assess the agencys progress in achieving selected key outcomes that you identified as important mission areas for the agency. USDA presented one performance report with agency-by-agency coverage and 1 departmental and 24 agency and office performance plans. We reviewed the same outcomes we addressed in our June 2000 review of the agencys fiscal year 1999 performance report and fiscal year 2001 performance plans to provide a baseline by which to measure the agencys performance from year-to-year. These selected key outcomes are ensuring an adequate and reasonably priced food supply opening, expanding, and maintaining global market opportunities for agricultural producers reducing hunger and ensuring food for the hungry ensuring a safe and wholesome food supply and reducing food stamp fraud and error.
