Office of Performance Management and Open Data
About the office
The Office of Performance Management and Open Data was established by Mayor Andy Berke in 2015 to run the City's open data and performance management program. The city collects a lot of data during its day to day operation. The goals of this office are to increase the availability of data that the city collects (open data) and to use this data to better the city for employees and citizens (performance management).
Our Performance Management Department helps encourage better government in several ways. First, through ChattaData, a website dedicated to measuring government improvement towards its efficiency goals. Second, through the Budgeting for Outcomes (BFO) process, which sets goals for how much money we will spend and how close are to meeting those goals. And finally, Departmental Measures, which track how individual departments are performing towards their goals of serving citizens better.
Our Open Data portal is the perfect place to find and explore all sorts of measures about the City of Chattanooga. From information on crime rates, to the number of new businesses started, to fire response times, the Open Data page will provide exact numbers about what is happening in Chattanooga.
