All People Trust Government is Efficient, Effective and Fiscally Sound

In order to deliver on the citizen-centric priority above, Fulton County government must recruit and develop a competent, engaged workforce and maintain a collection of facilities, equipment and technology in a way that enables high performance. In addition, the County must manage its finances wisely and develop and follow policies that promote both efficient and effective practices. Finally, the government must promote trust among its citizens by regularly reporting on its performance, conducting itself in a transparent and legal manner, and engaging with its residents in setting the direction of County government.

Performance Dashboards and Initiatives

Strategic Performance Dashboard
Strategic performance measures track activities which often extend beyond the power of one department or even the county government to affect on its own, but we believe improvements can be made in these areas through cooperation between departments and through partnerships with other government agencies, non-profits and the private sector. View dashboard
Department Performance Dashboard
Department performance measures are specific to county departments and are designed to track performance for the programs and services provided by each department. Departments set annual performance goals and report quarterly on their progress toward those goals.  View dashboard
Please note that the department dashboard is  currently being updated and revised with an expected completion date of April 9th.
Fulton County Strategic Initiatives
Strategic initiatives are major undertakings often involving multiple departments and are aimed at meeting strategic objectives. This section provides information on County's current year initiatives under the All People are Safe priority area as well as accomplishments related to initiatives from last year. View initiatives
