This measure represents the volume of information disseminated to the public and includes compact disks, diskettes, tapes, online subscriptions, electronic document downloads, web site pages, as well as traditional paper products. NTIS recently deployed it new Next Generation 2.0 website and has initiated the use of Social Media technology as part of its Outreach and Education activities to further the success of this goal.
NOAA - Milestones achieved in expanding capabilities (including staff) and transitioning SSA functions to DOC (new)performance.commerce.gov | Last Updated 2020-01-16T16:56:40.000Z
The new indicator tracks the percentage of progress made toward achieving full operating capability of the Commerce Department’s SSA function. The milestones account for multiple developments including expansion of human resources, establishment of Commerce personnel at the Defense Department’s existing SSA operations center, development of data standards and an open architecture data repository for SSA information sharing with industry, demonstration and testing of DOD data dissemination and fusion, and declaration of operational capability. Space Policy Directive-3 requires the Department’s new SSA function to achieve full operating capability by 2024.

This indicator demonstrates that NIST consistently produces useful and relevant scientific and technical publications and is outcome-oriented. The "relative citation impact" indicator is the ratio of the average number of citations per publication (citation rata) for all NIST publications in a year to the average expected citation rate for similar publications in a large group of peer institutions in the world. Publications typically lag by a minimum of two years due to the time needed for research, writing, journal peer review, and publication processes. The average for U.S. institutions is about 1.3.
NTIS - Total investment by the Federal Government on new public-private projects (or Government- Industry projects) entered into under the Joint Venture ( JV) Authority per yearperformance.commerce.gov | Last Updated 2019-12-06T17:02:26.000Z
TThe indicator measures the value, in U.S. Dollars, of all new project agreements between NTIS' Joint Venture Partners (JVPs) and Federal Agencies facilitated by NTIS in a given year. By tracking the obligated values, this indicator shows the actual Federal Government investment in technology and data analytics development
EDA - Percentage of those actions taken by Trade Adjustment Assistance Center clients that achieved the expected resultsperformance.commerce.gov | Last Updated 2020-01-30T17:09:28.000Z
This is a follow up to the previous measure: “Percentage of Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (TAAC) clients taking action as a result of the assistance facilitated by the TAAC.” This measure will determine if the assistance facilitated by the TAACs is market based and results in desired outcomes. The centers conduct client surveys and report findings to EDA.

Eleven EDA funded TAACs work with U.S. firms and industries that have been adversely impacted as a result of increased imports of similar or competitive goods to identify specific actions to improve each firm’s competitive position in world markets. “Taking action as a result of the assistance facilitated” means to implement an aspect of the Trade Adjustment Assistance provided by the TAAC. The TAACs provide three main types of assistance: help in preparing petitions for certification, analysis of the firm’s strengths and weaknesses and development of an adjustment proposal, and in depth assistance for implementation of the recovery strategy as set forth in the adjustment proposal.

Days-At-Sea (DAS) is the unit used to annually plan mission time aboard NOAA ships. Approximately 100 survey and research missions are planned and executed each year. A DAS is a day is which the ship is underway, under its own power, for greater than one hour, conducting mission operations, training, sea trials, or calibration. Also included are days in which hydrographic ships are not underway but are conducting operations aboard one or more ship-based launches.
NOAA-Percent Extended and Long Range Climate Prediction Center Outlooks Exceeding Threshold:All Precipitation Outlooksperformance.commerce.gov | Last Updated 2020-02-07T15:23:49.000Z
Metric calculated as the percent of Climate Prediction Center extended (outlooks out to 14 days) and long range (monthly and seasonal outlooks) temperature and precipitation outlooks exceeding Heidke Skill Score (HSS) of 10 (10% better than a climatological forecast). Due to the scarcity of long range outlooks (six per month), scores are smoothed over a three year period. To better track results, three individual metrics are tracked – 1) All forecasts combined, 2) Temperature only, and 3) Precipitation only.
NOAA - Annual number of peer-reviewed publications related to environmental understanding and predictionperformance.commerce.gov | Last Updated 2020-02-07T16:40:19.000Z
The annual number of peer reviewed publications is an indicator of productivity and relevance and is tracked using online resources. Peer review is one of the important procedures used to ensure that the quality of published information meets the standards of the scientific and technical community. * FY 2019 is the first year that we are reporting on both NOAA-authored publications (previously the only type of publication measured) and NOAA-funded publications.

This element/indicator measures the Department’s progress in managing risk through reducing the use of high-risk contracting authorities. High-risk contracting authorities, such as noncompetitive contracting, cost-reimbursement contracts, and time-and materials and labor-hour contracts, pose special risks of overspending. The Department’s high-risk contracting percentage for the base year (FY2009) was 53.4%, and OMB directed that we maintain a 10% reduction from the FY 2009 based on the share of dollars obligated under new contract actions that use high-risk contracting authorities for future FYs. The Department's target is 46.9%, which is a 10% reduction from the FY 2009 base. The target is depicted as a percentage. A percentage equal to or lower than 46.9% is favorable. Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) is the data source that is used for information pertaining to high-risk contracting activities and is the single source for U.S. government-wide procurement data.
