important public issues are developed and made available to the
policy-makers who affect the way we all live and work in Delaware, and to
members of the College and its clients.

It is important to maintain offices at reasonable staffing levels. However, when resources are strained, it is more important to manage them efficiently and effectively. Although good management is a goal for all prosecutors, it raises a set of questions. What is good management and how does one know when it has been achieved? If management needs to be improved, then how is this diagnosed and what are the performance measures that should be used? Finally, is there a need for additional funding and other resources to bring the management of prosecutors' offices up to an acceptable level? Some answers may be obtained by surveying prosecutors to identify the existence of good management practices throughout the state.
