Measuring What Matters

Priorities Assessment

Virginia Performs now offers additional new tools for assessing progress on Virginia's highest priorities -- many of which transcend agency or other organizational boundaries and require collaborative effort in order to affect performance in a meaningful way.

These assessment tools are available in a new section on Virginia Performs -- Priorities Assessment -- and currently include Governor McAuliff's Enterprise Strategic Priorities and 3 issue-specific report cards on workforce development, state government operations, and economic innovation and entrepreneurship.

This new Priorities Assessment content is available from any page on the site through a link ("Priorities Assessment") at top right.

From the Governor of Virginia:

The Commonwealth of Virginia is a spectacular place to live. We treasure the heritage and resources that contribute to our high quality of life, but it takes constant planning and fine tuning to maintain this quality and make needed improvements.

This website, brought to you by the Council on Virginia's Future, shows you how we measure the state's performance, plan for the future and monitor our progress. Explore the links above to see how we're working to make Virginia strong and healthy.

Thanks for visiting.
