2 Congress charged its own investigative arm, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), to ensure that agencies actually implemented GPRA. It is reasonable that agencies would turn to their own measurement experts when dealing with performance requirements. 1. GAO outlined the steps for all federal agencies in responding to GPRA. Agencies defined their missions, proposed measures for successful completion, determined how and when the data for those measures would be collected, and decided how these outcomes would be integrated into future plans.

In the early days of program evaluation, simple measurement of outcomes was considered the “job” of the evaluator. However, recently evaluators have become involved in the process by which programs, agencies, and individuals select performance indicators and determine whether the indicators’ performance match the goals and objectives of the agencies or agency subunits. This change signals that measurement and the skills of program evaluators in measurement can support the current demand for the accountability and effectiveness of public and nonprofit programs.
