FY 2010 performance plans

The Office of the City Administrator has posted FY 2010 performance plans for all DC government agencies.   Check them out and you will learn:
  • Department of Disability Services:   Build partnerships to increase the number of youth with disabilities in summer and year round employment
  • DC Public Library:   Increase library resources for children and their parents, teachers, and caregivers to support literacy. Provide staff, books and library materials that focus on pre-school and elementary school age children.
  • Department of Health:   By September 2010 complete implementation of the DOH components of the Child Health Action Plan which targets the reduction of infant mortality and morbidity in the District of Columbia.

This information is quite useful.   You can ask how the goals will be met if certain public policies/laws are changed, use them during the oversight hearings in February and March next year, and assess agency practice against the goals.
