About Us

The Commission on Government Innovation and Effectiveness is a bipartisan board of seven  citizen commissioners named by the County Executive. It was established by Executive Order of County Executive Steve Schuh.

The Commission’s charge is to study and advise the County Executive on the effectiveness of certain operations of government and recommend improvements. Specifically, the Commission will be making recommendations regarding

  • Benchmarks of effectiveness for County operations specified by the County Executive;
  • Opportunities for, and barriers to, collaboration and coordination with the private sector to create possibilities for public-private partnerships that enhance the effectiveness of government services and provide cost-savings to the County, and
  • Opportunities for, and barriers to, transfer of certain non-core operations to the private sector in order to create or enhance the effectiveness of those designated operations.
