Government Performance Summit 2019

The Performance Institute is proud to present the 2019 Government Performance Summit at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City near Washington, DC on June 3-5, 2019.

Hosted annually since 1999 by a coalition of good-government groups, the Government Performance Summit is the annual performance management event for the federal government. The Summit is led by speakers from the upper echelons of the Executive and Legislative branches, as well as leading federal managers who offer their experience and advice to managers looking to improve the results earned by their programs and agencies – putting attendees in the room with the decision-makers on management policy from the Administration and Congress.

The focus of the 2019 Summit is “Emerging Innovations and Data-Driven Strategies for Transforming Government” and addresses the needs of professionals in all levels of government who use performance information in critical organizational process such as budgeting, resource allocation, employee motivation, contracting, and improving services.

GPS goes beyond performance management concepts to get into initiatives that are helping transform service delivery across government. Sessions will tackle the use of data analytics to uncover ways to improve performance, Lean Six Sigma initiatives to streamline internal processes, strategies improving customer service, and ways to enhance cross-agency collaboration for results.

Attendees of the 2019 Government Performance Summit will go beyond financial performance improvement to explore and experience an exceptional exchange of practical strategies and hands-on learning. The 2019 attendees will learn about:


Define better performance measures to track outcomes and drive implementation of new program strategies


Improve the collection and reporting of agency performance data to make it easier for program managers to actually use data in their decisions


Utilize social impact bonds, pay-for-performance, and other innovative incentives to drive improved performance.


Identify ways to transform agency processes to maximize quality and efficiency while engaging employees in agency goals and missions.
