Municipal Performance Measurement
The Province of Ontario has developed a Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP) which require municipalities to report to the ratepayers on specific aspects of the operation of the municipality. The purpose of this program is to better inform ratepayers, and to encourage results oriented municipal governance and management. These measures, over years, will document any changes in the performance of specific services provided by the municipality.
MPMP is a performance measurement and reporting system established in 2000 that promotes local government transparency and accountability. It also provides municipalities with useful data to make informed municipal service level decisions while optimizing available resources.
For the 2014 year, all municipalities are required to report their data to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing by May 31, 2015, by including the data in Schedule 80D of their Financial Information Return (FIR). All MPMP data submitted by municipalities are and will continue to be made available to the public online at: http://csconramp.mah.gov.on.ca/fir/ViewSchedules.htm.
