Ensuring Accountability: Assessing the Impact of Mission-Support Programs
On November 9, 2011, the Academy and Federal Management Partners will host a discussion on the topic of assessing the impact of mission-support functions (human resources, financial management, information technology and acquisition).
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: John Kamensky, Senior Fellow with the IBM Center for The Business of Government
This half-day session will feature a keynote address and a roundtable discussion on:
- Clarifying the role of mission-support functions in enhancing agency missions;
- Identifying existing strategies and tools for assessing the effectiveness and impact of mission-support functions; and
- Identifying gaps in existing measurement techniques and possible standards and criteria for
assessing the impact of these programs.
While significant progress has been made over the past two decades to ensure accountability in critical mission-support programs, there has been little effort to provide agencies with specific guidance or a defined methodology for determining the actual impact of these programs on an agency’s overall performance. In the face of ever-shrinking resources and anticipated steep budget reductions, it is important to begin to define clear strategies and tools to help federal agencies formally assess the impact of these programs.
November 9, 2011; 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
National Academy of Public Administration; 900 7th Street, N.W., Suite 600, Washington, D.C. 20001
