Feasibility Study for the Evaluation of DHHS Programs Operated under Tribal Self-Governance. 1.1 - Summary of Findings


Purpose of Study:


Summary of Findings:

  • All evaluation models are technically feasible.
  • Costs would be very high for comprehensive model for evaluation of new DHHS programs under a (possible) demonstration, but results would be rigorous and useful.
  • Comprehensive evaluation of DHHS health programs operated under compacts is technically feasible and with moderate costs, but likely would not be feasible due to political considerations.
  • Limited evaluation model is technically feasible, with moderate costs, it is likely Tribes would agree to participate, and would produce solid and useful results for a limited range of evaluation issues.
  • Evaluation using aggregate reporting and monitoring data is technically feasible, would have modest costs, and likely Tribes would agree to participate, but would produce findings of limited value.
