        demonstrated performance, or other factors that the Director 
        considers relevant.

    ``(2) <<NOTE: Notification.>> The Director shall annually notify the

        Congress and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget 
        an audited financial statement for each fiscal year, covering 
        all accounts and associated activities of each office, bureau, 
        and activity of the agency; and
