The ICMA Center for Performance Measurement (CPM) has been in existence since 1994 to assist local governments in improving the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of public services through the collection, reporting, analysis, and application of performance information. The programs and activities of CPM are governed by the CPM Leadership Committee.
Leading and managing local governments requires understanding the performance of a jurisdiction across a range of criteria. A key ICMA initiative is to help local governments use performance data to establish goals and outcomes in budget decisions; set targets of performance; compare to and learn from other jurisdictions, and communicate service and financial improvements to citizens.
