Overall, Mayor Landrieu has committed to dramatically improving the accountability, transparency and performance of New Orleans city government. In January 2011, Mayor Landrieu created the Office of Performance and Accountability to implement a performance management system for the City, where the analysis of data is used to promote better results and to demonstrate the public's return on investment for their tax dollars. In addition to the ResultsNOLA report, the Office of Performance and Accountability has implemented public data-driven performance and review meetings, including BlightStat and QualityofLifeSTAT for key cross-departmental strategic issues.
The ResultsNOLA report released today is the eighth comprehensive report of each City department's performance and a continued fulfillment of Mayor Landrieu's commitment to a better, more accountable government.
