Performance Targets

Performance measurement and reporting is an important component of a complete system of performance management needed to demonstrate how well programs or strategies are working and why. Information obtained through better performance measurement and program evaluation provides insight that enables us to understand and replicate successes, and continuously improve programs. To this end, the Water Boards establish annual performance targets for key output measures. In effect, these targets are goals that establish measurable levels of performance to be achieved within a specified time period. Thus, for FY 2015-16 and in future fiscal years, actual work achieved will be compared to targets to better assess progress and describe Water Board performance. Targets are jointly established by the Regional Water Boards and the State Water Board. The targets for FY 2015-16 were derived with a consideration of each Regional Water Board's accomplishments during past years, current priorities, and available resources.

Starting in FY 2011-12, the Water Boards began implementing a systematic target setting approach that is based on available resources and uniform cost factors for key workload outputs. This target setting approach is now used to set targets for the NPDES Wastewater, Stormwater, Waste Discharge to Land, and Land Disposal programs. A description of this target setting approach is contained in the Water Board's 2012 Resource Alignment Report. Our results for FY 2015-16 and our new targets for the current fiscal year can be accessed through the links below.
