Governor Deal is intent on making state government more strategically focused and accountable for performance. To provide accountability and transparency, the Office of Planning and Budget (OPB) collects performance measures for state programs. Moreover, performance measures are a key component of Georgia's budget development process.
Legislative leadership share the Governor's interest in accountability and transparency. During the fall of 2012, OPB and the legislative budget offices reviewed the performance measures for 58 programs. The three budget offices are committed to improving the quality and usefulness of Georgia state agency program measures and will continue to work with agencies to develop relevant, clear and reliable program performance measures.
For the FY 2015 budget cycle, OPB asked agencies to submit workload, efficiency and outcome measures for each program that delivers services. Agencies identified and reported actual performance data for FY 2010-2013. Measuring performance in these three areas will help state decision makers and agency stakeholders understand how efficiently programs are operated, how well the customers are served and whether programs are achieving their intended outcomes.
OPB publishes a selection of measures for each agency in the Governor's Budget Report and a more comprehensive list of agency measures here on its website. The file below presents a detailed list of measures and FY 2010-2013 performance data that agencies submitted to OPB for the FY 2015 budget cycle. OPB has added bookmarks within this performance measure document for improved file navigation. To use the bookmark feature, open the PDF and click the Adobe icon at the bottom of the screen. Then, click the bookmark icon on the left side of the Adobe Reader window and select any state agency to view its measures.
