County Priority Outcomes

Performance Measures


The primary focus of the Office of the County Executive is to provide policy direction, reinforce accountability, and ensure the achievement of results for our residents. In support of these objectives, this office primarily uses the following tools to measure the effectiveness of the policy directions provided to County departments:

1. Departmental performance plans, headline performance measures, and program performance measures that are reviewed and monitored on a routine basis;

2. A "Dashboard" reporting system on departments' headline performance measures and program performance measures that monitors and reports to the public, in real time, the County's successes and challenges; and

3. Seven priority outcomes and 21 key indicators of County performance and quality of life.

Initiatives

  • Continue to expand the Innovation Accelerator program, increasing participation among County employees and partners to empower a workforce that makes the County a more effective, efficient, and equitable place to work for both internal and external stakeholders and delivers the best results for County taxpayers.
  • Create the Business Advancement Team and realign key staff in order to provide oversight and leadership on business programs including incubator management, economic development incentives and financing programs, business development projects, and other business-related special initiatives.
  • Continue to focus on results-based accountability across County departments through several strategic efforts such as Outcome Budgeting, a 10-Year Financial Plan, and the Turn the Curve approach.

Innovations and Productivity Improvements

  • Through expansion of the Innovation Program, oversee myriad cross-departmental projects to improve processes, reduce costs and errors, and improve customer service for County residents, partners, and employees.
  • Internal Audit completed and published ten audit reports (FY19 and FY20, to date), including reviews of the following: procure-to-pay operations; Access ID Card program; cashiering operations in the Department of Finance; use of field orders and change orders by the Department of General Services; grant operations in the Department of Health and Human Services; warehouse inventory management in Alcohol Beverage Services; and a risk assessment of the County's information technology environment.
  • Working with Departments, Internal Audit has seen continued progress in closure of open recommendations from Intergovernmental Relations, Office of Legislative Affairs, and Internal Audit reviews; with a closure rate of 90 percent.
  • Completed multiple Innovation Accelerator courses wherein participants focused on topics within their sphere of influence to reduce waste and improve outcomes for both internal and external stakeholders. Within Innovation Accelerator courses, facilitated discussions and encouraged peer support that resulted in employees completing projects such as shifting to an on-demand model in lieu of printing solicitations thereby saving the Office of Procurement countless man hours and thousands of sheets of paper; and successfully reducing processing time at the Department of Permitting Services for customers to receive a fuel storage tank permit while concurrently cutting the error rate related to these permits in half.
