The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has a Part C discretionary grant program that funded approximately 100 programs in the FY2002 appropriation. These programs are diverse in size and scope (e.g., research, training and technical assistance, service delivery, and other activities). The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) has made a commitment to a performance-based, outcone-oriented strategic budgeting process. In support of that commitment, OJJDP is developing a performance measurement system to use in monitoring the performance of the Parc C grants. This paper offers an overview of the performance measurement project including its usefulness to OJJDP and the expected products.
