  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. When you want to know the difference between two words (performance/program) be sure to check in a good dictionary first.

    Main Entry: per·for·mance
    Pronunciation: p&(r)-'for-m&n(t)s
    Function: noun
    Date: 15th century
    1 a : the execution of an action b : something accomplished : DEED, FEAT
    2 : the fulfillment of a claim, promise, or request : IMPLEMENTATION
    3 a : the action of representing a character in a play b : a public presentation or exhibition <a benefit performance>
    4 a : the ability to perform : EFFICIENCY b : the manner in which a mechanism performs <engine performance>
    5 : the manner of reacting to stimuli : BEHAVIOR
    6 : the linguistic behavior of an individual : PAROLE; also : the ability to speak a certain language — compare COMPETENCE 3

    Main Entry: [1]pro·gram
    Pronunciation: 'prO-"gram, -gr&m
    Function: noun
    Etymology: French programme agenda, public notice, from Greek programma, from prographein to write before, from pro- before + graphein to write —more at CARVE
    Date: 1633
    1 : [Late Latin programma, from Greek] : a public notice
    2 a : a brief usually printed outline of the order to be followed, of the features to be presented, and the persons participating (as in a public performance) b : the performance of a program; especially : a performance broadcast on radio or television
    3 : a plan or system under which action may be taken toward a goal
    6 a : a plan for the programming of a mechanism (as a computer) b : a sequence of coded instructions that can be inserted into a mechanism (as a computer) c : a sequence of coded instructions (as genes or behavioral responses) that is part of an organism

    Thus, it would seem, if there are separate budgets for the two items, that the program budget would cover the planning and the performance would cover the execution of that program.
