From Red Tape to Results: Creating a Government That Works Better and Costs Less

The National Performance Review is about change -- historic change -- in the way the government works. As the title makes clear, the National Performance Review is about moving from red tape to results to create a government that works better and costs less.

This report describes roughly 100 of the most important actions and recommendations, while hundreds more are listed in the appendices. The National Performance Review focused primarily on how government should work, not on what it should do.

On September 7, 1993, Vice President Al Gore and the National Performance Review released their report. This edition reproduces that document in its entirety. The National Performance Review was an intensive, 6-month study of the federal government, intended to be the beginning of a long-term commitment to change.
