Performance Management Data System Modernization

Background

The Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) Performance Management Data System (PMDS) has been developed in alignment with the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) to optimize the performance tracking and management of BLM activities. The system is designed to define, measure, and monitor the activities that are critical to the BLM's mission.


Challenges

Before the implementation of PMDS, BLM lacked a structured approach to manage and measure its performance against the activities outlined in its Strategic Matrix. This lack of a coherent system made it challenging to track the progress of activities, manage costs effectively, and ensure alignment with the GPRA requirements. The legacy system did not meet the latest zero-trust cybersecurity compliance requirements and was at risk to be shut down and no longer available for end users.

NexGen Technologies modernized the legacy ColdFusion-based PMDS application to the low code, cloud-based Microsoft Power Platform, leveraging Power Apps, Power Automate, Power BI, and Dataverse to enhance the efficiency of performance management data. It features integration with Azure Active Directory (AD) and phishing resistant multi-factor authentication (MFA) for streamlined user authentication and access management.

Power Automate is utilized to automate bulk tasks within PMDS, such as updating and importing records, which significantly improves data management efficiency. The Approvals application, part of the Microsoft ecosystem, is incorporated into the workflow to ensure prompt and efficient approval processes, which is critical for the execution of the BLM's activities and overall decision-making.
