Budget Secretary Releases Report on State Performance Standards
HARRISBURG – Budget Secretary Charles B. Zogby has released the 2011-12 Report on State Performance. The report reviews the activities of 30 commonwealth agencies, providing details on their challenges and accomplishments as they work to improve the lives of Pennsylvania’s citizens.
The report examines the commonwealth’s performance in the areas of education, economic development, health and human services, the environment, public safety, consumer protection and government efficiency. By outlining agencies’ key objectives and presenting measurable results in dozens of different categories, the report evaluates state government’s ongoing efforts to deliver quality services to its citizens.
“The Report on State Performance clearly outlines how effectively we are serving the residents of Pennsylvania and how efficiently these services are being delivered,” Zogby said. “As the commonwealth contends with increasing cost pressures on the budget, it is important that state agencies can measure success and demonstrate our fiscal responsibility.”
The report is available online in a “dashboard” format that offers interactive features not possible with a paper report. It can be accessed at www.budget.state.pa.us.
