Performance Review System (PRS) Report
In accordance with ONDCP’s responsibilities outlined in in 21 U.S. Code § 1705, ONDCP is required to evaluate the effectiveness of the national drug control policy and the National Drug Control Program agencies’ (NDCPA) programs, by developing and applying specific goals and performance measurements. The Performance Review System (PRS) report assesses the federal government’s progress toward achieving the goals of the National Drug Control Strategy.
National Drug Control Assessment
While the PRS focuses on the overall progress toward achieving the goals and objectives of the Strategy; it is complemented by the National Drug Control Assessment, which is a summary of the progress of each NDCPA’s efforts towards meeting the National Drug Control Strategy’s goals. The Assessment establishes each agency’s specific performance measures and includes an evaluation of the progress of meeting the annual targets of those performance measures.
In accordance with ONDCP’s responsibilities outlined in 21 U.S.C. § 1704, NDCPAs are required to conduct an annual detailed accounting, authenticated by agency Inspectors General, of all funds expended for National Drug Control Program activities. Additionally, NDCPAs are required to submit a Budget Formulation Compliance Report to ONDCP, which contains assertions about the timeliness of their budget submissions, and the bureau-level funding requests.
ONDCP carries out several of its statutory authorities through instructions set forth in a series of Circulars. These Circulars articulate the requirements in the areas of budget, performance, and policy.
