Baltimore City Mayor Announces OutcomeStat to Track Long-Term Goals

Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced a new initiative yesterday call OutcomeStat. While similar to CitiStat, which tracks day-to-day operations of agencies, OutcomeStat will work with the budget office to track longer-term City goals.

As reported by the Baltimore Sun,

“Yes, I want to promote efficiency every single day, but I want it to be bigger than that,” Rawlings-Blake said. “If we do these things, we will improve the quality of life for Baltimore residents.”

The Mayor also named a new director for the CitiStat Office.

Sameer Sidh, a former acting director of Gov. Martin O’Malley’s StateStat program, will begin work Oct. 26.

Sidh said he wants to restore a “culture of accountability” in the agency.
