Percent of CIP Projects that are Substantially Completed on Schedule

Measure Description
This measure is the percent of Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects that are substantially completed on schedule. Tracking this measure allows the Watershed Department to monitor the projects for timeliness.
Calculation Method
This measure is calculated by dividing the total number of projects completed on-time by the total number of CIP projects completed during the fiscal year. “On time” is defined as equal to or less than the amount of time allotted in the contract. Projects for which the Department contributed only funds are not included in the calculation.
FY 2014-15 Results
The FY 2014-15 goal for this measure was 100%. Of the six projects the Department completed, all were completed on schedule.
Assessment of Results
The Department completed the following six Capital Improvement Program projects on-schedule: 1) Waller Creek Reilly Pond; 2) Barton Zilker Metro Park Disc Golf Water Quality Renovation; 3) Blowing Sink Recharge Feature Maintenance; 4) Stream Stability Index and 5) Shoal-Ridglea Storm Drain Improvements.

Next Steps
The Watershed Protection Department will continue to focus on using its CIP dollars efficiently while exploring avenues to maximize the value of the dollars spent. This includes, but is not limited to, public-private partnerships such as that utilized on the Little Shoal Creek Tunnel project.
