Agency Key Performance Measures

Oregon adopted a multi-level approach to measuring the performance and outcomes of state government. The Legislative Fiscal Office and the Budget and Management Division of the Department of Administrative Services adopted a set of criteria that agencies must meet when developing measures. Measures must:

  • Gauge progress toward agency's goals and mission,
  • Use standard terminology and definitions,
  • Be few in number,
  • Identify performance targets to be achieved during the two year budget cycle,
  • Use accurate and reliable data sources,
  • Measure customer satisfaction,
  • Assign an organizational unit responsible for achieving the target, and,
  • Address comparable information, where possible.
During the budget deliberation process of each legislative session, the Legislature will approve, disapprove, or change/update each agency's proposed biennial performance measures.
