2. Performance Management


A 2018 Oregon statute requires agencies to submit key performance measure data to the Legislative Fiscal Office on a regular basis, in addition to sharing reports publicly to indicate Oregon’s progress toward identified measures. Oregon also has a Key Performance Measure system in which agencies report regular progress on identified measures to the legislature and the Governor’s Office. With the development of Oregon’s Racial Justice Council, the state is in the process of establishing a centralized vision for racial justice and equity that includes guidance for agencies on identifying strategic objectives and measures to support racial equity and in evaluating services from a community-focused standpoint. To support all these activities, in 2021, the Oregon Chief Data Officer hired the first Statewide Performance Manager. The role is responsible for building a culture of performance management and establishing guidance and feedback for agencies in using data to inform decision-making, identify strong outcomes, and ensure that Oregon state agencies are strategically aligned to advance the Governor’s strategic outcomes.
