The International City/County Management Association has recognized Suwanee for performance management. Suwanee is among 13 jurisdictions receiving the Certificate of Distinction and one of 57 recognized overall. This is the eighth year Suwanee has been recognized for its accomplishments since the certificates were first awarded in 2002.
“By recognizing these leaders, ICMA hopes to encourage others to make a commitment to collect and analyze data, report it transparently, and use it to continuously engage their communities and improve their organizations,” said ICMA Executive Director Marc A. Ott.
Certificates are awarded at three levels: Achievement, Distinction, and the highest level of recognition, Excellence. Recipients at all levels collect and verify data to ensure reliability, train staff in performance measurement and report data to the public through budgets, newsletters and/or information provided to elected officials.
Certificates of Distinction are awarded to those who also provide comparative and benchmarking information to the public, use performance data in strategic planning and operational decision-making, and share their knowledge with other local governments through presentations, site visits and other networking activities.
