In an effort to measure the effectiveness of Indiana’s NPS program, the NPS/TMDL section developed an evaluation strategy framework that is updated annually. The goal of this strategy is to develop and use indicators, both social and environmental, to establish baselines, and improve performance-monitoring systems, including a description at both the state level and project level of evaluation activities. The goal also strives to document what the state and citizens do, and the impact of those actions on the environment, as well as integrate the NPS program with the monitoring and assessment programs. The strategy will be implemented in a graded/stepwise approach with full implementation of the strategy in the NPS program targeted for September 30, 2009.
Evaluation framework goals include:
The full strategy is included as Appendix D.
