Strategy and Performance

Mission Statement

The Department of Strategy and Performance leads the development and execution of the County’s strategy, performance management and process improvement efforts to ensure performance excellence and government accountability for citizens, businesses and employees of Arapahoe County.

Performance Management Capability

Arapahoe County is committed to providing the best and most efficient county government services in the State of Colorado. The Department of Strategy and Performance upholds this commitment by leading the County’s strategy, performance management and process improvement efforts. Most notably, the DSP is responsible for the County strategy and performance scorecard referred to as Align Arapahoe.


Why Is This Important?
In an era of tighter budgets, reduced revenues and increased costs, finding ways for government to work better and smarter makes sense, as well as to help keep your taxes low.

Align Arapahoe is our path to continuous improvement. By using performance measures and feedback to monitor progress, Align Arapahoe is helping Arapahoe County to make better program, service and budget decisions.
