Evaluation Planning

Indicator: Measurable performance goals for the dispute resolution system have been set and evaluation activities are outlined.

Stakeholders provide input on what success looks like and assist with the development of measurable performance goals (beyond those required by the SPP/APR) for the dispute resolution system. Evaluation activities and responsible persons are identified, along with timelines. Evaluation activities include the collection, analysis, summarization, and review of both process and outcome data.

Examples: logic model, performance measures, table of evaluation activities
