Auditing Relevance and Reliability of Performance Information
October 11, 2017 from 2-3:50 pm
Performance measurement and management systems often fail
in government because the organization has not developed the right measures, or
key stakeholders lack confidence in the data reported. Auditors can make
valuable contributions to improving government performance management by helping
agencies improve the relevance and reliability of performance measures and data. This
webinar will focus on criteria and practices government auditors across North
America have been using to assess the relevance and reliability of performance
information, including auditors who have certified or attested to levels of
reliability or otherwise issued opinions on relevance or reliability.
The webinar will focus on assessing relevance and methods that can be used to audit or assist an organization in ensuring that their programs have the “right” performance measures, including how to assess existing program performance measures for usefulness and completeness. The webinar will also focus on methods for certifying or attesting to the reliability of an organization’s performance measures including an overview of a proven 15-step measure certification methodology used successfully by auditors at different levels of government. The methodology includes steps for assessing both the accuracy of reported data and controls on systems that produce the data.
