City of Greer's performance management efforts recognized
The International City/County Management Association (ICMA) has recognized the City of Greer with a Certificate of Achievement from the ICMA Center for Performance Analytics for the city’s performance management efforts.

“The certificate program recognizes the principles of performance management,” said Randall H. Reid, ICMA Director of Performance Initiatives.  “Jurisdictions meeting the qualifications have demonstrated leadership in continuous improvement and community engagement, and they serve as examples for other governments to follow.”

ICMA assesses a local government’s performance management program and encourages analysis of results by comparing to peers and gauging performance over time.

Performance management aids in cost reduction, program prioritization, and quality improvement. It also encourages accountability and transparency.

"One of our goals as a city is to engage residents and to make available information that they can easily access," said Mike Sell, the City of Greer's Assistant City Administrator. "We have practiced financial transparency for many years and it is an honor to now be recognized for our work in performance management."

Certificates are awarded at the levels of Achievement, Distinction, and Excellence.  Greer is among five jurisdictions receiving the Certificate of Achievement, and one of 48 recognized overall.

Criteria for the Certificate of Achievement include:

• Reporting of performance data to the public through budgets, newsletters, and/or information provided to elected officials

• Data verification efforts to ensure reliability

• Staff training. 

The city’s performance management site is located under the Government tab at www.cityofgreer.org.
