Consistent with the Government Performance and Results Act, the General Legal Activities' 2009 budget proposed to streamline the decision unit structure from 35 program activities to 10 to align the General Legal Activities' budget more closely with the mission and strategic objectives contained in the DOJ Strategic Plan (FY 2007-2012). In addition, the budget has been realigned to reflect the General Legal Activities' outputs and full costs by major program activity, including the costs of management and administration, so that a more accurate picture of total activity costs is reflected in the budget. In this way, budget and performance are more closely linked, and provide a better basis on which to make budget decisions. Over time, agencies will be expected to identify effective outcome measures, monitor their progress, and accurately present the associated costs.
