About Quality and Productivity Commission


In 1981, the Board of Supervisors (Board) created an advisory committee to lead the way in carrying out a program of productivity improvement for the County of Los Angeles. The committee was formed to provide the Board, the Chief Executive Officer, and County departments with advice, information and recommendations about productivity and work measurements, and to introduce private sector expertise. Today, the Quality and Productivity Commission (Commission) is comprised of professionals with diverse backgrounds and expertise. The Commission focuses on the quality of services provided to the residents of the County, as well as productive delivery of those services.

Due to the current public health crisis and economic uncertainties these last few months, the Commission made the very difficult decision to cancel/postpone the following events and programs: 18th Annual Leadership Conference scheduled for June 10, 2020 34th Annual PQA Luncheon and Ceremony scheduled for October 21, 2020 Thank you and be safe! We look forward to the day when we can see you again.
