2003 Annual Report

II. 2003 Performance Results Summary

The FDIC successfully achieved 27 of the 30 annual performance targets established in its 2003 Annual Performance Plan (two performance targets were not met and one was not applicable due to Congress not enacting deposit insurance reform during 2003). Key accomplishments by program are highlighted below. There were no instances where 2003 performance had a material adverse effect on successful achievement of the FDIC's mission or its strategic goals and objectives with respect to its major program responsibilities. In addition, 2003 performance results were considered in the development of the FDIC's 2004 Annual Performance Goals.

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) has shared its view of the most significant challenges the Corporation is confronting and has acknowledged the numerous actions underway to address these issues. (See Appendix C for a list of these challenges.) Management is committed to addressing each of the issues identified by the OIG.
