King County adopts change to budget process

October 2, 2012

By Staff

King County Council members adopted legislation Sept. 10 to integrated performance management and accountability into the upcoming county budget process.

Councilwoman Kathy Lambert, a budget team member and the Issaquah representative, said the step fits into the county’s effort to implement efficient practices, called Lean, into government.

“I am encouraged by the increased emphasis on the Lean processes that King County is implementing to improve productivity and provide better customer service,” she said in a statement.

The legislation created a Performance Management Action Team to make recommendations to the council regarding the link between performance management and accountability and the county budget process.
