Review of Public Health Service Systems for Assuring that Programs Are Necessary, Productive and Nonduplicative

Issued on  | Posted on  | Report number: A-01-93-01514

Report Materials


This final report found that the Public Health Service (PHS) systems for assuring programs are necessary, productive and nonduplicative form a foundation that, with some reorganization and redirection, could satisfy current and future requirements. PHS could: (1) focus more evaluations on programs rather than processes and individual projects; (2) improve program evaluations so they can better measure program performance; and (3) integrate evaluations into the PHS program planning, legislative planning and budget systems. The PHS agreed with our recommendations.
