Strive Toward Excellence in Performance (STEP)
Also known as:
Strive Toward Excellence in Performance
Function: Public-private effort to test strategies to improve government efficiency.
STEP was launched in the Winter of 1984 with the creation of a steering committee with representation from state government, labor and private industry. The steering committee shapes STEP policy and advises the Commissioner of Administration, Sandra J. Hale, on the implementation of the program.
Since February 1985, explanations of the program have been presented to state executives, managers, and employees.
The STEP program yielded some 40 pilot projects, initiated in 22 state agencies to improve productivity, service, and cost effectiveness under the program.
Co-chairs of the steering committee are Governor Rudy Perpich and William Andres, chairman of the executive committee of the Dayton Hudson Corporation.
The steering committee is made up of executives from business, labor, not-for-profit, and state government sectors.
