Strategic Planning and Accountability Planning and Evaluation Mini-Conference

A NIFA Planning and Evaluation Mini-Conference was held April 23-24, 2007 in conjunction with the Administrative Officers' Conference in Seattle, WA. This mini-conference was designed for those planning programs or engaged in performance measurement and program evaluation.  Participants learned about Plan of Work reporting, what NIFA has learned from the 2007-2011 Plans submitted, and how NIFA has used and expects to use information from annual reports and plans.
