Using Metrics to Assess Performance

Using Metrics to Assess Performance


Apply a measurement-based approach to assess the adequacy of government program operations performance. Learn how to prepare metrics of timeliness, quality, economy and efficiency, and how to apply those metrics in determining the adequacy of agency performance in producing and delivering program goods and services. Understand how to apply analytic methods in determining the cause of performance shortcomings and the potential for cost savings.

Engage in numerous public sector case studies where you prepare appropriate metrics; analyze the nature, extent, and cause of shortcomings; and organize the audit results into a finding.
