Maryland’s Statestat

The State of Maryland’s StateStat is a performance measurement and management tool, in which the performance of programs is continually monitored. “At bi-weekly meetings, State managers meet with the Governor and his executive staff to report and answer questions on agency performance and priority initiatives.”[8] These meetings are informed by detailed performance data that managers submit to the StateStat office, which are published on the State’s website.
