Local Government Performance Excellence Program

With the Local Government Performance Excellence Program (PEP), LG Professionals WA brings benchmarking to Western Australian Local Governments

LG Professionals WA is excited to offer a sophisticated benchmarking program, which will enable participating local governments to comprehensively and comparatively benchmark the performance of their local government with confidence. This opportunity will enable WA local governments to gain insights for improvement with the proven and highly successful Local Government Performance Excellence Program. The PEP focuses on measuring key areas in your local government to support, recognise and highlight good performance as well as assist in identifying areas that may need improvement. These areas of measurement are highly relevant in supporting you as a local government leader.

The PEP measures:
  • Corporate Leadership
  • Operations Management
  • Workforce Planning
  • Finance Management
  • Risk Management
  • Service Delivery

The PEP is a complete suite of innovative benchmarking and reporting tools including a dedicated data portal, a fully comprehensive performance excellence report, access to the Council Comparative Analysis Tool along with the Council Comparison Window feature (additional cost). The program provides local governments with real data to provide insight for knowledge based decision making. It provides statistical data to help build skills and capabilities to solve real issues. You are also provided with excellent personalised service and support throughout the entire process; and will be part of a strong community through our network of connected professionals.
