Performance Management & Budget Initiative Tracker

Performance management reporting provides information on the efficiency and effectiveness of the City of Tacoma’s operations. The City hopes that by making this information accessible, citizens will be better informed about the effectiveness of some City programs, how tax revenues are being spent, and progress toward the City's goals.

The City of Tacoma Initiative Tracker is designed to give a quick overview of progress made on budget enhancements awarded during the budget development process. Budget enhancements range from topics related to economic development to City finances.

24/7 Performance Reporting

Tacoma 24/7 is a quarterly report on 24 performance measures in seven key service areas. The service areas and measures were selected due to their connection to the City Council’s strategic priorities, relevancy to citizens, policy makers, and city management, and ability to be collected quarterly.
