Act 186: The Outcomes Bill
In 2010, and again in 2014, the Vermont Legislature codified a commitment to be outcomes-oriented and data-driven in how government sets policy and manages programs. Act 186, “The Outcomes Bill,” establishes Outcomes of Well-being and a process for the Executive Branch to report associated Indicators that reinforce a common, measurable agenda to improve quality of life in Vermont.

Act 186 also establishes an expectation that government programs report performance measures annually that can contribute to a performance-informed budgeting process, reported in the AHS Programmatic Performance Measure Budget Scorecard.
