NCCCS Performance Measures

Over the past three decades, the North Carolina Community College System has utilized numerous processes to ensure public accountability for state monies spent. These processes have included fiscal audits, program audits, institutional effectiveness plans and program review. Since the 1999-2000 fiscal year, a system of accountability based on 12 performance measures had been the cornerstone of public accountability. In the 2007 Session, the General Assembly approved modification to the North Carolina  Performance Measures and Standards as adopted by the State Board of Community Colleges, and as a result, the number of performance measures was reduced to 8, and performance funding will be based on all 8 measures.
