Governance and Support

The Florida Benchmarking Consortium Inc. (FBC) was formed in 2004 to facilitate the comparison of performance measurement data among Florida local governments and worked under the umbrella of the University of Central Florida's, Institute of Government (IOG), until the FBC Incorporated in April 2019. The FBC Inc. has not changed its mission and continues to focus on its intrastate collaboration of Florida local governments and authorities seeking to improve the delivery of local government services through the use of performance measurement data and proven benchmarking tools and techniques. The FBC is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of representatives of member local governments and two at-large members.  The FBC Board of Directors serves as the policy-making body of the organization, and the FBC's Executive Director, oversees the day-to-day operations of the organization.

The FBC holds a Conference each year at a member location around the State of Florida.  In 2024, we began surveying the membership and collecting data on relevant issues, service area data, impact of changing laws/guidelines, etc. that impacts performance and service delivery. The FBC's performance data management efforts and administration of supportive technologies are provided by the FBC's Executive Director.

The work of the FBC has been recognized nationally by such organizations as the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA), the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), and the John F.
