The Good Government Check program highlights adoption of proven businesses practices into the operations of government. Each Good Government Check report examines a public sector success story, or challenge; highlighting solutions which have improved or could improve management and efficiency.
The Washington Business Alliance piloted the program in October, 2013 with the King County Good Government Check. It delved into how the county instituted lean improvements to jail mental health services; took action to control workers' comp fraud; and retooled employee health care coverage to improve wellness and control costs.
In the future, Washington Business Alliance will expand the Check to the Washington state government, and other regional and local governments and agencies. As additional success stories are revealed, the underlying strategies and tactics can be integrated into PLAN Washington.
