Performance Improvement 2005. FY 2004 Results of Evaluation of Cooperative Agreements for Site Specific Activities


As part of an ongoing, annual process, a performance evaluation was conducted during FY 2004 to assess ATSDR’s State Cooperative Agreement Program for Hazardous Waste Site-Specific Activities in the affected States, American Indian communities and Puerto Rico. The evaluation focused on improvements needed as well as highlighting strengths. The evaluation for each state assessed compliance with established agency guidelines. ATSDR’s technical project officers in the Division of Health Assessment and Consultation conducted the evaluation with input from all participating agency programs and the cooperative agreement states. The states provided comment on their program and report their accomplishments over the review period. Poor performing states are given guidance for improving performance; states which continue to perform poorly may have their funding curtailed. FY 2004 was the first year that ATSDR acted on any of the poor performance -- it cut funding to one state and placed several other states on notice for FY 2005. Due to funding limitations, ATSDR has been unable, thus far, to reward good performers. (7740)
