The Department of Commerce (DOC) has one overarching purpose: Helping the American Economy Grow. American workers and businesses operate in a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive world.
DOC seeks to further its mission through implementing an effective, efficient, secure, uniform performance management system that is compliant with all the federal rules and regulations. Integrated full lifecycle performance management system will help DOC ensure that the performance management systems are streamlined. Required audits can be made at any time. Reports can be generated to develop predictive trends and expectations. Currently DOC's performance management is mostly paper-based with a combination of home-grown legacy systems which are not integrated thus they are not efficient and require lot of duplication of effort. Uniform reporting across agency is also deficient and may notbe totally accurate for any predictive analysis.
