City of Austin Performance Report 2015-16

Percent of CIP Projects Substantially Completed on Schedule 

Measure Description
This measure shows the percent of Capital Improvements Program (CIP) projects that are substantially completed on schedule in a given fiscal year. Tracking this measure allows the Watershed Protection Department to monitor its CIP projects for timeliness.
Calculation Method
This percentage is calculated using the total number of projects completed on time divided 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 construction contract. Projects for which the Department contributed only funds and did not manage are not included in this calculation.
FY 2015-16 Results
The FY 2015-16 goal and result for this measure was 100%.
Assessment of Results
The Department completed the following CIP projects on time in order to achieve a 100% substantial completion rate:
  • Shoal Creek Restoration – 15th to 28th Streets;
  • Boggy Creek Greenbelt – Rosewood (Reach B8) Stream Restoration;
  • Waller Creek District – Creek Mouth Schematic Design, Tunnel Side Inlet Modifications and Waterloo Park Interim Plan, Eastwoods Stream restoration;
  • Lady Bird Lake – Plaza Saltillo Transit-Oriented Development Storm Drain Improvements – Waller at 4th Street; and
  • North Edwards Geologic Mapping.

Next Steps
In the future, Watershed will transition to a new project process that utilizes existing staff for design and implementation of smaller projects. This new process will utilize both operating and capital funds to resource these smaller projects. The Watershed Protection Department will continue to focus on using its project dollars efficiently while exploring avenues to maximize the values of dollars spent.
