Washington State Government Measures - The Governor's Goals
Governor Inslee has directed the formation of a new, data-driven system for the effectiveness and accountability of Washington State government. Results Washington http://www.results.wa.gov/default.aspx is focused on five key goals that will help strengthen our economy, improve our schools and make Washington an ideal place to live and do business.
By setting clear goals and continually tracking results, the state will be better equipped to engage its employees, partners and the public in building a healthier, better-educated and more prosperous Washington.
All of the state agencies are responsible for this five goals.
- World-Class Education
- Prosperous Economy
- Sustainable Energy and a Clean Environment
- Healthy and Safe Communities
- Efficient, Effective and Accountable Government
Results Washington will use the latest technology to routinely gather, review and display performance data which will make it easier for citizens to see for themselves how well state government and its many partners — such as school districts, local governments and community organizations — are delivering services and meeting key performance goals.
The Results Washington team will work with agencies to gather and review performance data. This will provide valuable real-time information to help state managers spot trends and make data-driven decisions that will improve quality, speed up service delivery and support meeting improvement goals.
Key outcome measures and leading indicators have been identified for each of the five goal areas. These indicators require agencies to work together in developing strategic plans to meet the established goals. Results Washington will provide unprecedented transparency and access to information about how well state government is making progress toward the goals.
The Results Washington team will meet monthly to review performance data with the Governor, covering one goal area per month on a rotating basis. The data will be displayed and updated — with charts, graphs and context — on the Results Washington web portal.
