GPRA and Other National Reporting

The Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) requires Federal agencies to demonstrate that they are using their funds effectively toward meeting their missions. The law requires agencies to have both a 5-year Strategic Plan in place and to submit Annual Performance Plans describing specifically what the agency intends to accomplish toward those goals with their annual budget request. GPRA also requires agencies to have performance measures with specific annual targets. Every year, the Indian Health Service reports results for these GPRA performance measures.

GPRA measures for the IHS include clinical care performance measures, such as care for patients with diabetes, cancer screening, immunization, behavioral health screening, and other prevention measures. The agency also reports many non-clinical measures, including rates of hospital accreditation, injury prevention, and infrastructure improvements.

Quarterly GPRA Reporting

Beginning in 2018, official GPRA/GPRAMA measure results will be calculated through the Integrated Data Collection System Data Mart (IDCS DM) utilizing National Data Warehouse (NDW) data. However, IHS facilities and participating tribal facilities using the Resource and Patient Management System (RPMS) will still be required to submit GPRA Developmental data twice a year from RPMS’s Clinical Reporting System.

The deadlines for the 2024 quarterly GPRA Developmental report are as follows:

  • 2nd Quarter: April 26, 2024
  • 4th Quarter: October 25, 2024

GPRA Clinical Measure Results

Official GPRA/GPRAMA clinical measure results calculated through the IDCS DM are published annually at: IHS Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA)
