The Program Performance and Tracking (PP&T) team utilizes a collaborative management approach to work closely with partner agency staff, program stakeholders and other parties interested in the overall ecosystem health, water supply reliability and beneficial uses of the Delta.

The PP&T team maintains the CALFED Performance Information System, which was designed to track and report on the status of programs and projects that impact the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

About Program Performance

Performance measures are used to translate program goals and objectives into measurable indicators of progress. They are a vital part of an adaptive management approach that provides decision-useful information about areas of success as well as weakness.

The diagram below illustrates a Performance Measures Framework developed by the Science Program. Policy decisions are made based on the goals and objectives of the program. Management oversees implementation of the policy decisions - directing financial resources to priority actions.

PP&T staff hope this tool is of value to you, and would like any feedback and/or ideas you would like to offer about your experience in using this tool.

Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
