OJJDP is required to set clear program goals and collect performance measure data to demonstrate achievement of those goals. All recipients of OJJDP funding are required to collect and report performance data that demonstrate the results of funded activities. OJJDP is in the process of updating its performance measures. Grantees will be informed when the updated performance measures will be implemented for their program and the impact on their performance reporting requirements. 

To demonstrate program progress and success, as well as assist the office with fulfilling its responsibilities under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA), Public Law 103-62; the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010, Public Law 111-352; and the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, 2 CFR 200.328, applicants that receive funding from OJJDP must provide regular performance data that measures the results of the work done under the solicitation.

What are performance measures?

Performance measures are a specific value or characteristic that measure the output or outcome of a grantee’s activities and services in demonstrating accomplishment of the goals and objectives of OJJDP's programs.

Where can I find my program's performance measures?

Performance measures for individual programs can be found through a link in the solicitation or in the performance measures table in the solicitation's appendix. Solicitations are available on the Open Funding Opportunities page. Grant programs that report in the Performance Measures Tool (PMT) can also access copies of their performance measures from the OJJDP PMT Website.
