First County Progress Report Is Presented to Supervisors

In an effort increase transparency and accountability regarding the work and resources dedicated to the Board of Supervisor's annual objectives, the County Executive Office (CEO) has implemented performance management software which tracks progress on objectives set by the Board. At the July 9th Board of Supervisors meeting, Assistant County Executive Officer Mali Dyck presented the County's first mid-year report.

"It is pretty exciting seeing what is happening with regard to applying new technology to help us understand where we are with implementing and achieving Board Objectives," said Board Chair Richard Anderson. "I hope to see this evolving over time."

Starting with this first mid-year Progress Report, County staff will generate a new update to the report quarterly which will be available on the County Board of Supervisors website. Formal presentations will be made to the Board of Supervisors twice annually. Each report will include a progress update on initiatives, highlighting several of the many initiatives with additional detailed information.

"I love this report… it's all about the data," added District I Supervisor Heidi Hall. "This is providing us with the data to show us what we are actually accomplishing and were we may need to check in to help us see if our vision is being implemented."

These quarterly Progress Reports will increase transparency that will allow the Board and the public to have greater insight into the steps county departments and staff are taking toward accomplishing the Board's objectives.

"I am wowed," said recent resident Rick Partridge and retired Business Professor from San Jose State University. "…To see what is going on here in a really concise way, seeing the way that everybody operates, and the level of engagement from the community."

Each year in January, the Board of Supervisors plan for and set annual priorities for the County during their Board Workshop. The Board has set maintaining financial stability and core services, wildfire preparedness, addressing homeless and housing; implementing a cannabis ordinance; economic development and civic engagement as their top priorities for this 2019/2020 fiscal year.

After the Board set their annual priorities in January 2019, staff in the CEO's began working with departments to record the initiatives they were working on to accomplish the board priorities.

Assistant CEO Mali Dyck who presented the report to the board, "I want to thank staff," said Assistant CEO Mali Dyck who presented the report to the Board, "for their assistance in creating and documenting all the work that has been accomplished so far."

Over 70 initiatives were identified across the Board priorities. With the performance management software, ClearPoint, departments can now provide regular progress updates toward the completion of these initiatives.

Symbols are assigned to each initiative indicating the current progress of each item; the green arrow meaning the initiative is on target, the yellow square that the initiative is moving forward but may have significant barriers, the red downward arrow meaning the initiative has barriers that have stopped or significantly delayed its progress, the check mark showing a completed initiative and the blue circle meaning that work has not started yet.
