A program evaluation uses a variety of management and organizational data to assess whether the program objectives are being met and their impact on its customers. In government, a program evaluation can be an arduous task because multiple agencies may be involved in the program, along with often conflicting and changing program objectives
Choose any governmental program that you wish (Social Security Administration, Department of Defense, Federal Aviation Administration, the Security and Exchange Commission, your local City Hall, etc). Your evaluation should focus on three primary areas:
1. Financial compliance, which determines whether the funds were properly spent and whether the law was complied with;
2. Economy and efficiency, which determines whether resources have been used economically and efficiently;
3. Program results, which determines whether desired results have been achieved.
This project will require you to research information related to your governmental agency, so you may want to do a cursory review of the agency before beginning your project to ensure you can readily identify the necessary information. Some of the information may not be readily available since you are not as familiar with the agency, but since it is a public agency there should be adequate information available to do a general review of the primary areas as listed above.
