Analyze and respond
We use the following tools to analyze and respond to performance in agencies.
- Performance assessments are conducted by OFM to analyze whether agency performance measures demonstrate progress toward statewide results.
- In 2012, OFM completed the latest Transportation Progress Report (or Attainment Report) identifying key objectives and performance measures for the state's transportation goals. OFM completed the first transportation baseline report, proposing objectives and performance measures, in January 2008.
- Performance audits are conducted by the Joint Legislative Audit & Review Committee (JLARC) and the State Auditor's Office to determine whether agency programs effectively and efficiently deliver intended results. Governor Inslee, OFM, and state agencies strongly support use of performance audits as an important tool to improve government.
- Agencies are required to assess their quality and performance management systems under RCW 43.17.390.
