Performance Improvement 1995. Chapter III. PHS Agency Evaluation Activities


PHS Agency Evaluation Activities

The eight Agencies of the Public Health Service (PHS) and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH) maintain their own evaluation programs--including the functions of evaluation planning and policy review; quality assurance through technical review; project coordination and management; dissemination of reports; and utilization of results. This chapter provides an agency-by-agency summary of the evaluation activities. Each section begins with an overview of the Agency's evaluation program, describing its philosophy, policies, and procedures. Next are summaries of the major evaluations completed in fiscal year (FY) 1994 and the evaluations currently in progress. Finally, there is a discussion of new directions for the Agency's evaluations, including priorities for future program and policy evaluation projects. Abstracts and contact persons for all evaluations completed in FY 1994 are presented at appendix A, organized by Agency. Appendix B lists all evaluations in progress, by Agency. Review criteria used by the special panel of senior editorial advisors for assessing evaluations can be found in appendix C.
