The Federal Government impacts our daily lives, from ensuring the safety of our meals to maintaining the safety of our roads, and driving innovation through research. This fall, Performance.gov took to Twitter and LinkedIn to show just how universal the impact of the Federal Government is by getting back to the basics… the ABCs!

What are Agency Priority Goals?

Agency Priority Goals (APGs) are near-term achievements in an agency’s strategic plan that improve outcomes, customer experience, or efficiency. These goals serve as stepping stones towards long-term objectives outlined in the agency’s strategic plan. Federal law requires government agencies to provide regular updates on their journey towards achieving their goals. These updates are released to the public on Performance.gov every quarter, promoting transparency and results-driven governance.

The #FederalAPGs: A to Z

Using visual graphics mirroring grade school alphabet books, the #FederalAPGs campaign showcased the alphabet from A to Z to highlight the FY 2022-23 Agency Priority Goals on social media.

Check out the full alphabet of #FederalAPGs below, and learn more about each of the agency priority goals.

Government is as universal as the alphabet itself, and plays an essential role in shaping our world.
