HHS Program Inventory
The GPRA Modernization Act (GPRAMA) of 2010 requires a central inventory of all federal programs. The federal Program Inventory has the potential to facilitate coordination across programs by making it easier to find programs that can contribute to a shared goal, as well as improve public understanding about what federal programs do and how programs link to budget, performance and other information.
This document describes each of the 115 programs that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) administers across 11 operating divisions as well as how the program supports the Department’s broader Strategic Goals and Strategic Objectives. Please refer to www.Performance.gov for program contributions to our Agency Priority Goals and Cross-Agency Priority (CAP) Goals. The Department currently contributes to the following CAP Goals: Entrepreneurship and Small Business; Veteran Career Readiness; Science Technology, Engineering, and Math Education; Cybersecurity; Job Training; Real Property; Improper Payments; and Data Center Consolidation. For each operating division, we included the budget authority reported in the FY 2014 President’s Budget for fiscal years 2012, 2013 and 2014 (requested).1
In developing the program inventory, HHS worked to closely align the list to the Department’s budget structure and Treasury accounts. This approach is consistent with how the Department operates and serves the American people and generally reflects the way Congress appropriates funding to HHS. In some cases, the Department aggregated or disaggregated existing structures with the goal of developing a program inventory that resonates with the American public and our external partners and closely reflects agency operations.
1 The budget data included in this publication reflect the levels displayed in the FY 2014 President’s Budget. The Prevention and Public Health Fund (Prevention Fund) resources for FY 2013 are displayed in the Office of the Secretary. The FY 2012 and FY 2014 allocations of the Prevention Fund are included in the appropriate operating division. FY 2013 funding levels do not reflect sequestration.
