New GAO Report on Leveraging Performance Metrics GAO Report on Leveraging Performance Metrics2021-07-28T12:00:00Z,<div class="ExternalClass5E42BD097084420C991B468B52BBB6C7">The Government Accountability Office (GAO) yesterday issued a new report of interest entitled “<a href="">GAO-21-491 Federal Contracting: Senior Leaders Should Use Leading Companies’ Key Practices to Improve Performance</a>”.<br> <br> According to the GAO, “The government buys a huge range of products and services, from military aircraft to common office supplies. We looked at how 7 leading companies manage procurement, and whether the federal government follows similar practices. We found that successful companies: <ol> <li>link performance metrics to broader strategic goals</li> <li>work with those using the products and services to develop these metrics</li> <li>use outcome-oriented metrics, like timeliness and quality </li> </ol> The agencies we looked at didn't consistently use the second and third practices. We <a href="">recommended</a> that the agencies use them to improve their operations.”<br> <br> Speaking of metrics, particularly product support and sustainment-related metrics, check out our <a href="/acquipedia/pages/articledetails.aspx#!724">Product Support SMART Metrics</a> ACQuipedia article and a March 2020 “<a href="/training/career-development/logistics/blog/Helpful-Product-Support-Metrics-References">Helpful Product Support Metrics References</a>” DAU LOG Blog.<br></div>string;#/training/career-development/logistics/blog/New-GAO-Report-on-Leveraging-Performance-Metrics
