Measure/Explanation Actual Target Result
Accuracy of Budgeted Expenses
This metric covers the accuracy and precision of planned (budgeted) and actual expenditures. Expenditures include operating costs, such as personnel, insurance, consulting and supplies, as well as debt payments and capital equipment purchases. Not included are the costs of large capital projects that occur over several years and have a beginning and end.
Expenditures are separated into Governmental and Enterprise. Governmental expenditures are for those activities that are primarily supported by taxes and grants and to a much lesser degree from fees. Examples are Police, Streets Maintenance, Parks, Museum, Fire, etc. Alternatively, Enterprise expenditures related to activities that are accounted for like a business and are entirely supported by fees charged to users. These include Light and Power, Water, Wastewater, Storm Drainage and Golf.

City Employee Cumulative Turnover Rate
Turnover is a measure of the rate at which employees leave employment with the City. It includes classified and unclassified management employees and all separation reasons (layoffs, and voluntary and involuntary terminations). While turnover is typically measured annually, this report includes turnover reported on a year-to-date basis for each calendar year. The rate is calculated by dividing the total number of employees who separated year-to-date by the average headcount for that reporting period (quarters are cumulative).

City Employee Safety - Days Away Restricted or Transferred (DART) Rate YTD
The Days Away Restricted or Transferred (DART) rate calculation is based upon the number of work related injuries and illnesses severe enough to cause an employee to be temporarily reassigned or miss work completely in relation to the total number of employee hours worked. This is a nationally recognized standard safety metric. Current-year benchmarks are not available as they are published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and have an approximate 18 month lag time.
