Trend information displayed in the above CPR “Baseline” is reliable. However, information displayed in the CPR table below may not reflect actual current Mission Elements, goals, or the actual performance measures used. Furthermore, performance data is not currently displayed for measures that are intended to extract data from automated systems. And, adjustments have not yet been made to reflect the change in fiscal year to begin on October 1 each year rather than August 1. We are currently upgrading our CPR processes and systems to correct these problems.
