Governor Martin O’Malley ran for office in 2006 with a commitment to make government work again for the people of our State. Since then, Governor O’Malley has instituted StateStat – a system of performance-based management – to make our State government more accountable and efficient.
In 2008, Governor O’Malley created the Delivery Unit as an extension of StateStat to work with state agencies to align state and federal resources around 16 strategic and visionary goals to improve the quality of life in Maryland. The goals are broadly categorized into four key areas – skills, security, sustainability, and health – reflecting the challenges and opportunities we face as a state in the 21st Century.
The Governor’s Delivery Unit is modeled after Prime Minister Tony Blair’s Delivery Unit developed in the United Kingdom. The Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit was created in 1997 to help oversee reforms in heath, education, transportation and criminal justice.
