Governor Larry Hogan created the Governor’s Office of Performance Improvement by Executive Order on October 8, 2015. He and Lieutenant Governor Boyd Rutherford are focused on improving Maryland agencies through transparency and accountability, making state government more efficient and responsive to taxpayers, and ensuring Maryland taxpayer dollars are spent responsibly.
The Governor’s Office of Performance Improvement assists agencies with measuring and managing performance information. We also work with agencies to communicate performance information internally and externally. We also support agencies with implementing performance and process improvements.
The Maryland Open Data Portal
The Maryland Open Data Portal is a public-facing solution to visualize and download over 300 searchable datasets of valuable Maryland data. From crime statistics, to phosphorus pollution reduction measures for the Chesapeake (with EPA targets), to tax revenue from Maryland tourism, to wait times at the Motor Vehicle Administration, to property assessments, and much more.
