Boston About Results (BAR) is the City’s performance management program that uses performance measurement and data analytics to develop strategies and programs that evaluate city performance, reduce costs, and ultimately deliver better services to Boston’s residents, businesses, and visitors.
Our collection of scorecards outline the goals of the program but most importantly provide a wealth of information that afford the public insight into the services the City provides along with a snapshot of our performance.
