Trend and Analysis
The agency is responsible for financial planning and ensuring that financial resources are available for agencies to utilize for their business operations. In FY 2016, OMB implemented a full-service team structure in an effort address our increasing workload which resulted in additional analysts receiving specialized grant training and orientation to their assigned agencies’ grant portfolio and technical assistance needs. In FY 2017, the agency experienced a slight increase in its performance in this area. The agency will continue to evaluate this specific metric to determine if the target should be adjusted. Additionally, the agency will continue to investigate the need for additional indicators that track the full grant lifecycle as this metric currently reflects the measurement of time between the agency forwarding the Notice of Grant Award (NGA) to OMB and the subsequent loading of grant funds only.
