  • ADH Strategic Plan, including its goals and objectives, and progress made on activities to achieve its goals and objectives dashboard of performance measures (also referred to as indicators).

  • A dashboard of performance measures (also referred to as indicators).  These indicators are critical to performance management activities throughout the agency.  The indicators were selected by members of each ADH Center.
