Summary of 2006 Performance Results by Program

The FDIC successfully achieved 27 of the 32 annual performance targets established in its 2006 Annual Performance Plan. Five performance targets related to the resolution of failed institutions were not applicable, because there were no insured institution failures in 2006. There were no instances in which 2006 performance had a material adverse effect on successful achievement of the FDIC’s mission or its strategic goals and objectives regarding its major program responsibilities.
