Getting Results from Gramm-Leach-Bliley

The Government Performance and Results Act (P.L. 103-62) requires federal agencies to establish clear goals based on their statutory authority. They must also report annually on their progress in meeting those goals.

With regulations under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act in place, improvements in privacy protection should now become a major part of the Results Act documents produced by the agencies that regulate financial services.

This is not an easy intellectual exercise because "privacy" reflects the values of individuals, which governments are in a difficult position to protect. Nonetheless, if taxpayer dollars are to be consumed and business practices altered in the name of privacy, the results of that spending and regulating should be measured.
