This Report’s Purpose and Reporting Process

This document combines the Department of Justice Annual Performance Report (APR) for FY 2016 and Annual Performance Plan (APP) for FY 2018.

The APR/APP 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 of 2010 (GPRAMA). 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. For the FY 2016 Performance Report section, the Department’s FY 2014-2018 Strategic Plan is used and is available in the Department’s website at
