Abstract:

The Federal government recently placed a new emphasis on accountability for results, that is, what did the programs funded actually accomplish with the money they spent? In 2002, the Office of Management and Budget put into practice, in concordance with the President's Management Agenda (PMA), a new tool, the Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART), for formally evaluating the effectiveness of Federal programs. The main objective of PART is to improve program performance by assessing program activities across the Federal government. The legislation behind this brought a new emphasis on performance measurement into Federal programs. In response to this, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), U.S. Department of Justice, has developed a performance-based system for assessing its state and local programs funded through the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002. This paper discusses the development and implementation of the performance measurement system for many of OJJDP’s programs and how this will enable OJJDP to measure progress toward its strategic goals.
