PMA / Business of Government / Strategy 1 / Success Metrics

Success Metrics

Goal 1.1: Create a diverse and resilient Federal marketplace. Success metrics for Goal 1.1 include:

  • Increase the number of new small business entrants within priority supply chains in the Federal marketplace

  • Strengthen domestic supply chains through increased program, project, and buying office participation in pilot plans to organize Federal demand*

    * This success metric will complement ongoing work of the Interagency Policy Committee (IPC) on Executive Order 14017 America’s Supply Chains, the Industrial Strategy IPC, and the Made in America Office, to build holistic approaches that actively engage program and acquisition offices to strengthen supply chains across agencies and missions.   

  • Demonstrate increased stewardship year over year through the use of category management key performance indicators (KPIs), including cost avoidance, spend under management (SUM), spend through Best-In-Class (BIC) solutions**, and training

    ** Best-in-Class (BIC) solutions are Government-wide contracts/vehicles identified through a collaborative interagency process by acquisition category experts within the Government as offering the best pricing and terms and conditions within the Federal marketplace and reflecting the strongest contract management practices.

Goal 1.2: Ensure interoperability and sharing of acquisition data and tools. Success metrics for Goal 1.2 include:

  • Success metrics under development

Goal 1.3: Build our best by developing an inspired, engaged acquisition workforce. Success metrics for Goal 1.3 include:
