Expect More From Your Government

ExpectMore.gov is a pretty cool new web tool from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget and other federal agencies designed to "assess the performance of every Federal program and hold ourselves accountable for improvement."

You can search by keyword/topic, view a list of performing or nonperforming programs, or browse by a specific area (such as health). The record for each program includes a description, rating, bullet points supporting the rating, and improvement plan. Ratings are grouped into Performing (effective, moderately effective, adequate) and Not Performing (ineffective, results not demonstrated).

A few relevant examples:
  • Human Trafficking
  • Family Violence Prevention and Services Program
  • Domestic HIV/AIDS Prevention
  • Chronic Disease - Breast and Cervical Cancer
  • CDC: Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Tuberculosis
  • Family Planning
  • Office on Women's Health
