What is OKStateStat?

Welcome to OKStateStat, Oklahoma's performance transparency website to showcase performance-informed budgeting efforts. One of the tools to accomplish performance-informed budgeting is the creation of Statewide Programs aligned within agency budgets.

Under the leadership of Gov. Mary Fallin and her cabinet, the state has charted its strategy by crafting 5 strategic statewide goals and underlying Statewide Programs. The Governor’s Office worked with the Office of Management and Enterprise Services, the Governor’s Cabinet and other key stakeholders to define strategic priorities and outcome measures for each Statewide Program.

Currently, there are 52 Statewide Programs identified; these may evolve over time, as continuous improvement is the motivation for performance-informed budgeting. These Statewide Programs allow the state to bridge the gap between performance measures and dollars actually spent on services. This cross-agency perspective allows for more informed questions about the most effective allocation of state resources.
