Peoria Recognized for Performance Management Success

The International City\County Management Association (ICMA) announced that the city of Peoria has been recognized for superior performance management efforts with a Certificate of Excellence from the ICMA Center for Performance Measurement (CPM). Peoria

8/8/2011

PEORIA, Ariz. (August 8, 2011) –The International City/County Management Association (ICMA) announced that the city of Peoria has been recognized for superior performance management efforts with a Certificate of Excellence from the ICMA Center for Performance Measurement™ (CPM). Peoria is among 28 jurisdictions receiving the honor this year.

“This is the second year we have been recognized with the highest level of award from CPM,” said Katie Gregory, budget coordinator for the city of Peoria. “This past year, the city implemented a number of performance management initiatives that are considered best practices. These changes have, in part, helped us maintain the ‘Excellence’ status.”

“The certificate program is one of the pillars of CPM,” says Michael Lawson, director of CPM.

“Through our certificate program, local governments are recognized for their exceptional
commitment to continuous learning and improvement. The criteria on which the certificates are based serve as a checklist of effective, results-oriented management practices.”

The certificate program assesses a local government’s performance management program and encourages analysis of results by comparing to peers and gauging performance over time. Performance management aids in cost reduction, program prioritization, and quality improvement. It also encourages accountability and transparency.
