This CIPP TA product is designed to help projects funded under OSEP’s discretionary grant programs develop high-quality project performance measures. These project-specific measures supplement the required Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measures grantees are required to report to OSEP each year. This guide presents an approach for developing high-quality project performance measures and explains how the GPRA and project measures work together to allow for meaningful tracking of program and project performance. The guide also outlines a simple, but thorough, five-step process for developing performance measures.
