Annual Performance Progress Report
Annual Performance
Annual Performance Progress Report
Performance measures help shape program elements and activities. For instance, an alarming rise in boating deaths on coastal bars resulted in a joint initiative with the U.S. Coast Guard to develop a public information and warning campaign focused on the Buoy 10 fishery.
The Marine Board reports key measures to federal agencies including the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Information is communicated to stakeholders through an annual agency newsletter, Underway, and five separate programmatic quarterly newsletters targeted at specific stakeholders. Information is also communicated through agency-hosted training conferences such as facility grant workshops, pre- and post-season law enforcement conferences and at our website.
The goals selected by the Marine Board reflect the agency mission of dedication to "...safety, education and access in an enhanced environment." Goal 1 is to promote safe boating, with measurements quantifying successful safety inspections, patrol hours on the water, alcohol use by boat operators and passengers, boating fatalities per capita, and compliance with Mandatory Education laws.
Goal 2 focuses on protecting the environment, quantifying use of sanitary facilities and improvements at access facilities.
Goal 3 looks at customer service, rating the Marine Board's service to recreational boaters, quality of the www.boatoregon.com website, and quality of publications.
Some of these goals are measured annually through various surveys or accounting methods, but others are measured every three years through the Marine Board's Triennial Survey Results. All results are monitored by program managers and staff and used to improve the quality of the programs and services offered.
