Title: Performance Funding in Federal Agencies: A Case Study of a Federal Job Training Program
Citation: Public Budgeting and Finance, 2003, 23, 3, 22-48
Our case study highlights important details that enter into developing performance contingent budgeting schemesdetails that do not emerge in more general discussions of the subjectand shows how the handling of these details can be crucial to these schemes' success. We study a federal job training program that gives state and local decision makers discretion over the program's operation, but through performance funding holds them accountable for achieving specific objectives. We find that states' modifications to the scheme's construction produced over time highly individualized performance funding schemes that likely varied in their effectiveness.
