Webinar: BJA PMT Revised Tribal Performance Measures for TCAP/IASAP Grantees

Thursday, May 29, 2014 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time
Tuesday, June 3, 2014 from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time

Attention Healing to Wellness Court TCAP/IASAP Grantees,
BJA is slightly revising the Performance Measures that you are required to report on as a part of your grant management. They are hosting a webinar to go over these changes. Find more information below. Note, these reporting requirements only apply to tribes that receive TCAP or IASAP funds.

As part of BJA’s approach to improve performance measurement of their programs, data analysts assess program accountability indicators for reliability and validity. The reliability of the data is determined by the quality of the information entered in the Performance Measurement Tool (PMT). The validity of the data is assessed by the instrument’s ability to measure what it reports (content validity). BJA examines whether the questions fully represent the theoretical construct (logic model) and are able to extract data representative of short and long-term outcome measurements.

Resulting from this assessment, a few minor changes will be made to the TCAP/IASAP measures collected in the PMT. Changes include an increase in the allowed amount of administrative set aside costs to 40%, more definitions, and the option to skip questions that may not apply to your program’s activities within a reporting period.

Data entry in the PMT (https://www.bjaperformancetools.org<https://www.bjaperformancetools.org/>) on these revised measures will begin July 1, 2014 for grant activity that occurred from April 1 – June 30, 2014.

To help you comply with this reporting requirement, BJA has scheduled training sessions through a Microsoft LiveMeeting Webinar on the dates and times below to present the revised performance measures and respond to any questions. We strongly recommend that you register for training.

You only need to participate in one training session.
