3.  A Federal agency’s approach to performance management should include strategies and process to foster a culture of engagement and collaboration AND a diverse, results-oriented, high-performing workforce, AND a performance management system that differentiates levels of performance of staff, provides regular feedback, and links individual performance to organizational goals.

4.  A Federal agency’s use of evaluation should contribute to agency performance by monitoring and evaluating outcomes of its human capital management strategies, policies, programs and activities, checking both for merit system compliance and for success in identifying, implementing, and monitoring process improvements.
