With the advances in government reform, government performance measurement has been continuously improved. Because the theme and goal of government reform determine the content and focus of performance measurement for government, the establishment of the reform goal of building a service-oriented government in China provides new institutional basis and goal orientation for improving government performance measurement. The development of government performance measurement has seen some new trends: the value orientation of measurement has shifted from being government based to community based; the goal orientation of measurement has moved from internal control to external accountability; the content of measurement has gone from being work oriented to function oriented; and the way of measurement has shifted from being spontaneous and mobile to self-conscious and normative.
