The Fiscal Year 2004 President's Budget Request for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) incorporates the
annual performance plan required under the Government Performance and Results
Act (GPRA). The Fiscal Year 2004 performance goals and measures are detailed
in AHRQ's performance plan and are linked to both the budget and to the Strategic
Plan of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Performance targets in the plan depend partly
on resource levels requested in the President's budget and could change based
on congressional appropriation action. GPRA requires that HHS plans and budgets
be accountable for program results. The intent of the Act is to improve program performance by considering
performance information in decisionmaking and by involving our partners and
stakeholders in accomplishing program results.
