1-Year Agency Response
According to CALPIA, it formed a strategic business council of five CALPIA managers, who are each responsible for one of the five strategic plan goals. The strategic business council is to assess progress on the goals each month. Further, at least monthly, these five managers also meet with their staff to assess whether its strategic business planís underlying objectives and action steps are relevant to accomplishing the planís goals and that measures used to track progress are properly utilized. In addition, CALPIA indicates that its performance measurement matrix has been improved to capture results with performance indicators in a dashboard-style chart that uses color codes and is updated and reviewed monthly by management. Instructions have been developed to provide clear and standardized instructions for managers and staff when reporting and utilizing the improved performance measurement dashboard matrix.
