Certificate of Achievement in SEA Reporting

Certificate of Achievement in Service Efforts and Accomplishments Sunsets (Discontinued)
 

AGA has discontinued the Certificate of Achievement in Service Efforts and Accomplishments (SEA) Report Review Program as of March 31, 2013. Limited resources and fewer governments submitting SEA or performance reports for review led to the closure. Originally, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation financially supported the program. When the grant ended in 2010, AGA and corporate partner, Accenture, supported the program. We hope that our program has led your agency to embrace performance measurement and management, and that you will continue to prepare and communicate your entity’s performance to its constituents. Contact Evie Barry if you have any questions or comments.

Certificate of Achievement in Service Efforts and Accomplishments (SEA) Report Review Program

The mission of AGA's Certificate of Achievement in Service Efforts and Accomplishments (SEA) Report Review Program is to stimulate and help state and local governments prepare valuable and comprehensive SEA reports that inform the public, elected officials and management about their government's efficient and effective use of taxpayer dollars. To that end, the program reviews reports and provides recommendations to strengthen the reports ability to provide useful information and to recognize through an award structure, those governments that prepare exemplary reports.

"These awards (King County Aims High and King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks) confirm that we are on the right track in demonstrating accountability and transparency in government," said then-King County Executive Ron Sims. "Performance measures are one of the best tools government has for assessing our effectiveness in delivering vital public services."
