NORC has worked with agencies to develop data collection systems and dashboards designed to monitor and assess their grantees’ performance. The design phase is informed by first reviewing the agency’s budget, the objectives of their grant program, and their federal reporting requirements. Appropriate performance measures are then selected and detailed data collection protocols are adopted to ensure the reliability and validity of data collected. The systems developed by NORC have as a basic objective to leverage existing grantee data from progress reports and other required reports in order to minimize grantee reporting burden and data entry error. The systems are customized to ensure that agencies are able to submit their performance reports efficiently, with minimal effort and within their timeframe.
