During the 1990s, the nature of general and financial management practices within the public sectors of many jurisdictions underwent significant change. The Australian state of Victoria represents an example of a jurisdiction in which the extent of change was particularly large. In the context of that state’s adoption of an output-based budgeting and management framework, the development and reporting of performance indicator data became a matter of increased significance in sustaining continuous improvement. This paper reports the results of a study of performance data reported within the Victorian public sector, and highlights problems indicated by high degrees of turnover in inventories of reported indicators over time.
