Abstract

Unlike the private sector, no single overarching metric exists to evaluate public sector performance. Without concepts such as profit, it can be difficult for government agencies to be accountable to stakeholders. Unless organizations have a clear strategy that holds performance to account, the organization can become pathological and never truly succeed. Momentum has been building towards evidence-based evaluations and management in government, inspired by the use of evidence-based decision-making, made popular by Michael Lewis’ book Moneyball. This article presents a platform for adopting the forensic version of ‘moneyball’, the FORESIGHT Project, as a strategic tool to set metrics as goals, develop ways to achieve them, and improve the performance of public forensic service providers.
