This Act sought to focus the federal government into four critical realms of fiscal concern. They are accountability, organizational structure management planning and performance, and quantification of programs, performance, liabilities and investments. By the middle of 1994 the Department of Defense has aggressively instituted significant reform in its organizational and methodology infrastructure to begin to meet the criteria established in the Law.
