KeepingCurrent: The Power of Surveys in Performance Management

May 17 | 1 p.m. ET
In Partnership with ASPA's Center for Accountability and Performance

Evidence-based performance management offers an enormous opportunity to improve public services but since the 1990s, when the performance management movement began gaining popularity in the United States, scholars and practitioners have identified several barriers to making the data useful. Two senior-level evaluators from Idaho's nonpartisan Office of Performance Evaluations discuss how the office uses surveys to enrich available program data and conduct independent evaluations in Idaho, which has been called a "data-free zone." Attendees will learn about situations where surveys can help address challenges in performance measurement.

Presenters:
Ryan Langrill, Principal Evaluator, Idaho Legislature’s Office of Performance Evaluations
Rakesh Mohan, Moderator, Director, Idaho Legislature’s Office of Performance Evaluations
Sasha O’Connell, Senior Evaluator, Idaho Legislature’s Office of Performance Evaluations
