Office of Agriculture


Mission

The Office of Agriculture (OAG) was created in July 2016 and exists to promote agriculture as a viable component of the County's economic sector, as well as to preserve farmland as a resource for future agricultural production. The goal of the OAG is to promote Montgomery County as a leader in the agricultural industry by providing support to our farm community and working to educate our residents.
Department Performance Measures
Montgomery County departments are broken out into discrete programs for the purposes of Outcome Based Budgeting.
A program is an activity or set of activities performed by County government that has:
  • identifiable costs for budgeting purposes
  • a clear public purpose and measurable results, and
  • clear lines of accountability for its performance and financial management
 
The following are the performance measures for programs within the Office of Agriculture. In our performance framework there are three categories of measures:
  • How much did we do? (quantity)
  • How well did we do it? (quality)
  • Is anyone better off? (effect or impact)
