A metric used to reflect the critical success factors of an organization Can be financial or non-financial Nature of KPIs will differ depending upon the nature of an organization A KPI is a key part of a measurable objectives (which includes a direction, KPI, benchmark, target, timeframe)

6 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Effective KPIs… Should help define: –The What – Are we doing the right things?

8 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Literature Review re: Best Practices Performance measurement best practices –Balanced scorecard –UK National Consumer Council –“The Regulatory Craft” –“Red Tape to Smart Tape” International Conference (2002)

9 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Balanced Scorecard Developed by Harvard professors Kaplan and Norton Four categories –Customers –Internal Business Processes –Financial –Organizational Capabilities Weakness re: definition of “customer”

10 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation UK National Consumer Council Three steps to credible regulation –Objectives –Content –Structure and Governance

11 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation “The Regulatory Craft” Book by Malcolm K. Sparrow (Brookings Institution Press, 2000) Controlling risks, solving problems and managing compliance Matrix of “Regulatory Competencies” and “Business Results” Acknowledges “internal” versus “external” measures

12 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Red Tape to Smart Tape Conference Sponsored by the Ontario Government in association with the Institute of Public Administration of Canada Core concept – Traditional business results measurements do not address public welfare issues and are not suitable for regulatory purposes

13 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Environmental Scan Other engineering regulators in Canada Other professional regulatory bodies in Ontario and across Canada Most report key transactional statistics (e.g., number of licence applications) Little evidence of outcome measurement

14 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Challenges What does it mean to be an effective regulator? Inability to benchmark due to lack of reporting by other “comparable regulatory bodies” Can’t use measures typical for professional associations KPIs must be evaluated in context

15 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation List of Potential KPIs Competence programs Intrusions on regulatory mandate Complaints about licence holders or unlicensed individuals Licensing turnaround times Compliance action statistics Council evaluation

16 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation List of Potential KPIs con’t Fairness & dignity survey Complaints about PEO Employee engagement Percentage of licence holders with no reported violations Public confidence survey score Ratio of administrative overhead to program delivery cost

17 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Survey re: Relevance and Importance PEO Council, Senior Management and selected external stakeholders Relevance – the applicability of a KPI as a measure of PEO’s effectiveness as a regulator Importance – the priority that should be given to a KPI as a measure of PEO’s effectiveness as a regulator

18 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Survey re: Relevance and Importance Survey also included proposed short-term measures for each KPI, intended to cover the introductory transitional period Survey results were assessed in view of the best practices review –Need balance of internal and external measures) –Need to ensure key regulatory competencies are represented

19 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Recommended KPIs Competence programs Complaints about licence holders or unlicensed individuals Compliance action statistics Employee engagement Public confidence survey score

20 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Competence Programs Pros –Competent members reflect a well regulated profession –Competency is fundamental to professional regulation and easily understood by the public Cons –PEO currently has no competence programs in place and none planned in the near term

21 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Complaints about Licence Holders etc. Pros –Easily measured (transaction statistics already reported) Cons –Frivolous or vexatious complaints could skew the data –Does complaint volume really speak to regulatory effectiveness?

22 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Compliance Action Statistics Pros –Clear statement of enforcement activity –Some statistics already reported Cons –Need to define what qualifies as a “compliance action” –Of greater interest to licence holders than to the public

23 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Employee Engagement Pros –Regular survey of employees already in place –Survey is widely recognized and used Cons –Is PEO willing to take action in deficient areas? –Are the survey areas relevant to a professional regulatory organization?

24 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Public Confidence Survey Score Pros –Solid external measure of how PEO is perceived –Survey would be conducted by an independent research firm Cons –Frequency of measurement –Who is “the public”?

25 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Implementation Issues Currently no competence programs in place at PEO Measurement data exists for only three of the recommended KPIs Public Confidence Survey still in development Issues of KPI reporting (timing, frequency, format) still to be determined

26 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Aftermath Project report received and considered by PEO Council in November 2006 Concern that recommended KPIs were all “lagging indicators” – there were no “leading indicators” Concern that recommended KPIs would drive policy and program development Concern about lack of competency programs

27 Atlanta, Georgia 2007 Annual Conference Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation Aftermath con’t PEO Council struck a task force to further examine the question of KPIs for PEO Task force report (June 2007) recommends a new project with more research work re: critical success factors before defining KPIs Status as of September 2007: awaiting new project charter / terms of reference
