Status Indicators Defined

On target

A green arrow indicates that the goal is on target to be accomplished by their estimated completion date. “On target” items may also be ongoing items continuously being implemented by the department.

Lagging goalA yellow square indicates that the goal is lagging and needs to be monitored in the near term to ensure that the goal can be completed within the specified timeline.

Insufficient progressA red arrow indicates that the goal has insufficient progress needed to meet the specified timeline. A red status should not be interpreted as failure—it simply means that the goal or action item needs more attention to ensure that the specified timeline can be met. Please note that external factors can play a role in the inability to meet timelines such as funding and staffing.

Being monitoredA blue circle indicates that the goal is currently being monitored and that the implementation of that goal is expected to start in a future quarter or year. Please note that external factors can play a role in the inability to meet timelines such as funding and staffing.
