County Participates in 2022 Performance Measurement Program
Washington County is participating in the 2022 Performance Measurement Program and has submitted a report on 11 standard measures created by the Council on Local Results and Innovation.
The Minnesota Legislature created the Council on Local Results and Innovation in 2010. The council created a standard set of 10 measures for counties. Participation in the standard measures program is voluntary. A county that elects to participate in the standard measures program for 2022 may be eligible for a reimbursement of 14 cents per capita in county program aid, not to exceed $25,000.
Washington County is committed to providing quality public services to its residents in an efficient, cost-effective, and responsive manner. In an effort to sustain or improve service levels to residents and to more strategically align performance to management decision-making, Washington County implemented a system of results-oriented government in the early 1990s.
The Washington County Annual Performance Measures and Indicators Report helps Washington County keep pace with changing expectations, focus attention on improving critical programs and services, make effective decisions, and communicate results to its residents.
