This article extends existing knowledge of performance management use by examining intergovernmental (IG) efforts as drivers of local government use. A capacity-building framework is proposed with IG strategies that (1) increase local leaders’ awareness and commitment to performance management; (2) provide technical assistance for increasing local government capacities; (3) incentivize local governments to take performance management seriously; (4) institutionalize local efforts that deepen and broaden performance management practice. Using audit assessments, field study, and survey research, this article empirically examines a comprehensive national IG effort that promotes performance management use in local governments. Results show that IG strategies, separately and combined, increase performance management use. This article makes recommendations for increasing IG practices that promote performance management use by subnational governments.
