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.” These meetings are informed by detailed performance data that managers submit to the StateStat office, which are published on the State’s website.
