Report on governance assessment released

Yesterday, the City Auditor’s Office released a special report on governance assessment. The report provides the Mayor and City Council with information to help understand the governance practices of the boards and commissions in Kansas City. Governance deals with what an organization should do and focuses on planning, setting goals and objectives, and developing policies to guide the organization and monitor its progress. This is the first year boards and commissions were required to complete a governance assessment checklist and the City Auditor was required to report on the results.

In 2001, the City’s boards and commissions spent more than $222 million in public money for police, parks and recreation, and ambulance services, and for business and development incentives. Eight of 11 boards and commissions participated in the governance assessment. The report includes the boards’ and commissions’ written responses to questions about their governance practices.

This report can be accessed from the City’s Web site beginning Oct. 24.
