Managing for Results: Analytic Challenges in Measuring Performance: Hehs/Ggd-97-138

Managing for Results: Analytic Challenges in Measuring Performance: Hehs/Ggd-97-138

Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the implementation of the Government Performance and Results Act’s (GPRA) requirements in the pilot phase, focusing on: (1) the analytic and technical challenges agencies are experiencing as they try to measure program performance; (2) the approaches they have taken to address these challenges; and (3) how the agencies have made use of program evaluations or evaluation expertise in implementing performance measurement.

The Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) is a global collaboration of more than 140 computing centers in 35 countries, the 4 LHC experiments, and several national and international grid projects. The mission of the WLCG project is to build and maintain a data storage and analysis infrastructure for the entire high energy physics community that will use the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The LHC Computing Grid is an evolving infrastructure due to the continuous increment of capacity, performance and adoption of new technologies. Within this context and in order to provide excellent access to data and computing resources, quality needs to be managed at different levels: Quality of sites: the reliability of the computer centers belonging to the infrastructure; Quality of resources: the performance of the available computing clusters and storage systems; Quality of data: the integrity of the information collected by the 4 LHC experiments; Quality of middleware: the access to both data and computational resources in a standard and secure way. This presentation describes in detail how these quality aspects have been addressed during the ten years of existence of the LHC Computing Grid.
