Enabling new processes for urban governments to address service delivery challenges and leverage performance data to drive management decisions

In Amman, Jordan there had been a population explosion of 1 million new residents over 3 years due to urbanization and increased pressure from refugees from neighboring Syria. Despite the population growth, there has been a lack of infrastructure and funding to manage solid waste, from street sweeping to household pickup to disposal in landfills. The poor solid waste management (SWM) has undermined citizen confidence in city government, and poor SWM has the potential to disrupt economic growth and trigger political instability.

CityPerform, a tool to help manage city services, was developed in a joint initiative between the Greater Amman Municipality and a team from Deloitte. Built upon more than 15 years of municipal management innovation in the US, municipal managers are enabled by tools that can help hold department heads accountable for stated results. Within these tools, a streamlined performance framework of objectives and measurable indicators are agreed to in advance and linked to overall strategy. Dashboards visually track municipal service performance and facilitate management decision-making.

CityPerform is helping Amman reinvent how it manages city services to better meet its diverse service delivery and city governance challenges through metrics and standards, customer-centricity, and information to insight.
