Government Performance Project: Grading The States 2005

  • August 01, 2005
In February 2005, the Government Performance Project (GPP) released its latest evaluation of state management performance, “Grading the States 2005.” A review of four key management areas – money, people, infrastructure, and information – the project found that while all states faced similar economic challenges, the worst in over 50 years, their reactions and reaction times differed widely. Some states developed innovative and swift responses, while other states drifted behind.

In August, the GPP published a new report, “Grading the States – A Look Inside.”  Replete with charts on impending retirement of state employees, the value of deferred infrastructure maintenance and many others, the report provides greater insight on the management capacity of the 50 states.
