Evaluation Institute an engaging and collaborative opportunity

Plan to Interact & Be Engaged!

The Evaluation Institute will establish a shared vision and common understanding of DNPAO’s performance monitoring and evaluation approach by bringing together SPAN, HOP and REACH recipients and CDC staff.  Recipients can look forward to interactive opportunities for shared problem-solving and networking with evaluators from other recipient sites. Recipients should plan to have up to three team members, such as the evaluator, program manager, and principal investigator, attend the Institute. Those who attend the Evaluation Institute must have attended the May 6 – 8 DNPAO General Training. The Thursday plenary session will feature the CDC's first Chief Evaluation Officer Tom Chapel, who will present "Learning to Love Your Evaluation." Feel free to wear comfortable, casual attire and be ready for an engaging and collaborative experience!

Together We Share


By the end of the Evaluation Institute, recipients will be able to:

  • Describe the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) performance monitoring and evaluation approach;
  • List key NOFO evaluation deliverables, expectations, and timelines;
  • Identify their assigned DNPAO evaluator and additional DNPAO evaluation staff that are available to support them in their evaluation efforts; and 
  • Network with peers from other recipient sites for future evaluation collaboration.
