Welcome to the Office of Performance and Accountability

About Us

Established in 2012, the Office of Performance and Accountability (OPA) leads the City Government's efforts to achieve results for the community through continuous learning and improvement within the City's Results Alexandria performance management system.

"Quality performance management and accountability are key components of our City's Guiding Principles. We want to use a data-driven process to operationally evaluate our work, analyze information that helps us deliver services more effectively, and look at outcomes as we make choices about how to allocate resources efficiently. Most importantly, we want to ensure that our taxpayers clearly understand how their investment in government services is delivering results for them. In order to achieve the goal of quality performance management, I established an Office of Performance Accountability (OPA). OPA is identifying and implementing tools that help the City approach performance management from an organizational perspective, while aligning our outcomes interdepartmentally with the Strategic Plan."
