The Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB) created a website to guide government officers in reporting their performance information. The resulting ‘service area and accomplishments reporting for governments’ website (http://www.seagov.org/) not only includes clear guidelines for creating your own performance report, but also provides leading examples of municipalities that are meeting or exceeding the GASB guidelines in their reporting.

For a list of these leading municipalities, please see this link: http://www.seagov.org/initiatives/local_gov_cities_and_towns.shtml

The Association of Government Accountants (AGA) and the PPMRN also jointly identified key examples of municipalities that are leading the effort to report their performance. While a few of the municipalities are also named on the GASB listing (above), there are many additional municipalities highlighted in this listing as well.
