Abstract

Washington’s Department of Community, Trade and Economic Development (CTED) operates a variety of programs geared toward improving the state economy as well as efforts targeted to distressed communities and rural areas.  This JLARC review looks at the performance measures associated with this agency’s Economic Development and International Trade Divisions.  While JLARC finds that, overall, CTED has created a good performance measurement system, the study makes three recommendations to share best practices, communicate performance information, and establish targets based on external standards.  CTED concurs with the report’s recommendations.
