Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s Performance Management
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, as an independent, five-member body, regulates certain aspects of the oil, natural gas, and electricity industries, and licenses hydroelectric projects. As required by the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993, the Commission developed performance goals in four major areas to help guide mission accomplishment: Energy Infrastructure, Competitive Markets, Market Oversight, and Resource Management. In support of its goals, the Commission established about 45 annual performance measures and a number of related targets.
