Introduction

This Report's Purpose and Reporting Process

Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-136 guidance provides agencies the option to produce a consolidated Performance and Accountability Report (PAR) or a separate Annual Performance Report (APR) in reporting performance information and metrics. The Department of Justice (DOJ or Department) has historically published a consolidated financial performance management reporting via the PAR. However, starting in fiscal year (FY) 2013, the Department will use an APR instead of the PAR to report on performance management.

This document combines the Department of Justice Annual Performance Report for FY 2013 and Annual Performance Plan (APP) for FY 2015. Combining our report on past accomplishments with our plans for the upcoming year provides the reader a useful, complete, and integrated picture of our performance. It represents a continuing step forward in the efforts of the Department to implement the tenets of performance-based management at the heart of the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act 2010 (GPRA 2010). Moreover, the APR/APP provides performance information, enabling the President, Congress, and the American public to assess the annual performance of the Department of Justice. The APR/APP is prepared under the direction of the Department's Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and the Performance Improvement Officer (PIO).

The Department continues to enforce vigorously the broad spectrum of laws of the United States; notably, the fight against terrorism continues to be the highest priority of the Department. The Department's FY 2014-2018 Strategic Plan is available on the Department's website at http://www.justice.gov/jmd/strategic2014-2018/index.html. The Strategic Plan includes 3 strategic goals and 18 strategic objectives that are mentioned throughout this report.
