dc.description.abstractPerformance measurement is a management tool that provides governments with oversight and accountability for departments and activities underneath the government’s jurisdiction. It also allows governments to prioritize activities and pick between alternative strategies, using evidence-based decision-making. Local governments in the United States are turning to performance measurement to increase transparency and accountability to their stakeholders, the citizens.

This paper examines the reasons why and explores solutions to the problem.en
