The Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP), an initiative of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH), was first introduced for the 2000 Reporting Year. This program requires municipalities to collect specific data on the following nine core municipal services areas: local government, fire, police, garbage, water, sewage, transportation, land-use planning, and social services.
The number of measures to be reported on an annual basis has increased to over eighty efficiency and effectiveness measures in 2012.
