Multi-Measure Performance Assessment and Benchmarking of the Division of the Wyoming Highway Patrol.

The purpose of this project is to develop and implement a Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) based multi-measure performance assessment framework for the Wyoming Highway Patrol (WHP). The utilization of this framework will result in the identification of the best-performing (i.e., most efficient) divisions of WHP. These best-performing divisions can then be used as peers/benchmarks for the divisions that do not perform as well so as to help those divisions improve their performance. Results of the proposed research will trigger decision-makers to identify the differences in the formal structures, operational practices, or other organizational factors of the divisions that may account for the observed efficiency differences The ultimate purpose is to improve the performance of the divisions that perform at a lower level than their peers so as to ensure organization-wide performance improvement of WHP with respect to the performance measures outlined in its balanced scorecard.
