Staff Study on Program Planning and Performance Measurement

We reviewed the extent to which formal strategic planning, risk assessment and performance measurement activities have been used by the Department of Environmental Conservation. We found that these activities have been used to some extent within the Department. However, we conclude that greater and more systematic use could be made of these activities. For example, while the Department has compiled a great deal of data relating to its performance, it has not developed systematic procedures for measuring and reporting its performance in relation to its goals and objectives.
