Dave, I would start with the purpose of reporting, which provides context that helps everyone sort and present whatever information they have available. At DOL, I help prepare quarterly reviews for our component agencies that provide updates on key performance measures and milestones. This is now a federal requirement, so I’m sure Interior has a corresponding framework. Our reviews focus on progress in reaching targets identified in agencies’ annual operating plans, which display aggregate data and targets for measures that apply to each region. Milestones are generally initiatives that may require development in the national office and subsequent pilots or rollout to the regions.
