In fiscal year 2007 we exceeded the targets for five of our six key performance measures--financial benefits, nonfinancial benefits, past recommendations implemented, new products with recommendations, and testimonies--that gauge how well we produced results and served our client, the Congress. With this level of performance we were able to achieve a return on investment for the American people of about $94 for every dollar the Congress gave us. We also met or exceeded five of the eight targets we set for our people measures--new hire rate, acceptance rate, retention rate with retirements, retention rate without retirements, and staff development. While these measures were largely similar to last year's results, we missed the performance targets for staff utilization, leadership, and organizational climate by 5, 1, and 2 percentage points, respectively, in spite of the challenges we faced internally. While supporting the Congress's oversight efforts with more than 1,200 reports and testimonies we issued during the fiscal year, in November 2006, we sent a letter to the incoming leadership of the new Congress suggesting three dozen areas for additional oversight. The challenge before us in serving the Congress and the nation is to help maintain a government that is effective, transparent, and relevant for this generation and generations to come. GAO will continue to "lead by example" in transforming government while providing the most professional, objective, fact-based, nonpartisan, nonideological, fair, and balanced information possible to the Congress and the American people."
