Review of the Department's 2000 Performance Report/2002 Performance Plan
We reviewed the Department's 2000 Performance Report/2002 Performance Plan in response to a request from Chairman Dan Burton of the House Committee on Government Reform. We found that the Department reasonably presented its progress and plans. Improvements in this year's document included establishing a new performance measure on airport capacity. Areas for further improvement include establishing a goal of rescuing an increasing percentage of mariners in imminent danger, and establishing performance measures on the rate of foreign and domestic commercial drivers and vehicles placed out of service following inspection.
