Two-thirds of all agencies that completed the 2002 Annual Quality Self Assessment identified “communicating organizational performance” as an opportunity for improvement. State government agencies must stay in touch with those we serve and with our own employees. Communicating value and results demonstrates a sense of responsibility, accountability, and commitment in delivering public services. External communication connects us to citizens and stakeholders that have a vital interest in what we do.
