“Where We Stand” is the City of Ottawa’s performance benchmarking report containing 112 performance measures for 2005 in 21 different service areas. The comparative measures were assembled as part of the Ontario Municipal Benchmarking Initiative (OMBI), and show how Ottawa performed relative to 14 other Ontario municipalities.
The report shows that, overall, Ottawa’s performance compared well to other Ontario municipalities:
- 46% of measures are better or significantly better than the median result
- 25% are at median
- 29% are below the median
The Ontario Municipal Benchmarking Initiative (OMBI) is a groundbreaking collaboration between 15 Ontario municipalities that represent 9.1 million citizens or 72% of the population. Led by the Chief Administrative Officers (CAOs) and City Managers in each participating municipality, it fosters a culture of service excellence in municipal government. It does this by creating new ways to measure, share and compare performance statistics and allows experts in participating municipalities to share ideas on operational best practices.
