Board of Governors Accountability System
The Seven Board of Governors Accountability Measures
The following table is a listing of the seven accountability measures as approved by the Florida Board of Governors (BOG). This characterization constitutes a simple way of identifying the BOG focus and expectations.
BOG accountability reporting is to be designed as a reporting tool predicated on continuous improvement until goals are reached, and maintenance thereafter. The report will track performance relative to (1) projections based on past performance, (2) performance against national peers, and (3) performance against goals negotiated via the BOG Strategic Plan.
Goal-setting will be accomplished by a combination of national peer institution performance and negotiated targets via the Board of Governors Strategic Plan rather than on past performance alone.
