Professional Edge: Engaging Citizens in Performance Management and Budget Prioritization

Dr. Alfred T. Ho, associate professor, School of Public Affairs and Administration
For the past few decades, performance management has been pursued by many local governments as a technical managerial tool. This presentation discusses the results of a series of research that looks at how citizens perceive government performance and how government officials could engage them more effectively in budget prioritization and performance management.

As KU senior Ashlie Koehn helped prepare a meal of horse and goat — she is studying abroad in Kyrgyzstan — she got a Skype call from Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, telling her she had been named a 2015 Truman Scholar. Koehn is majoring in environmental studies, economics, and international studies. She chose Kyrgyzstan, her third study abroad experience, to increase her cultural competency and sharpen her Russian language skills. One of Koehn’s favorite things about the country? The beautiful mountains and lakes. She plans to use the $30,000 Truman award for graduate study in the economics of climate change. While she appreciates Kyrgyzstan’s mountains, her environmental pursuits concern her own native plains. “As a fourth-generation Kansan, I am deeply concerned about how climate change will affect the lives and livelihood of Kansans.” Read more about Ashlie Koehn and her surprise Skype with the Chancellor: http://bit.ly/1awodaa University of Kansas College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Kansas Air National Guard KU Study Abroad Harry S.
