Message from the Performance Improvement Officer

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) supports and implements programs that enhance the health, safety, and well-being of the American people. HHS strives to provide all Americans with high-quality healthcare and social services. With its skilled, dedicated, and diverse workforce, HHS is well-positioned to fulfill its mission and achieve the goals and objectives in the FY 2022-2026 Strategic Plan.

In accordance with the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993, as amended in the GPRA Modernization Act (GPRAMA) of 2010, I am pleased to present the Fiscal Year 2024 Annual Performance Plan and Report, documenting the Department’s performance during the past year. Further information detailing HHS performance is available at

HHS monitors over 900 performance measures to manage departmental programs and activities and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of these programs. As required by GPRAMA, this report includes a representative set of performance measures to illustrate progress toward achieving the Department’s strategic goals in the FY 2022- 2026 Strategic Plan. The information in this report spans the Department’s 12 operating divisions and 13 staff divisions and includes work done across the country and throughout the world. Each HHS division has reviewed its submission and I confirm, based on certifications from the divisions, that the data are reliable and complete. When results are not available because of delays in data collection, the report notes the date when the results will be available. As additional data becomes available, HHS will continue to update the information on those impacts in future reports. The results presented here demonstrate that HHS is performing well across a wide range of activities.
