The Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) requires Federal agencies to demonstrate that they are using their funds effectively toward meeting their missions. The law requires agencies to have both a 5-year Strategic Plan in place and to submit Annual Performance Plans describing specifically what the agency intends to accomplish toward those goals with their annual budget request. GPRA also requires agencies to have performance measures with specific annual targets.
As part of this federal mandate, all SAMHSA funded programs must collect and report performance data. The Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) describe the data collection and performance measurement process. Programs generally the PDF reporting forms available on this page and submit to the appropriate Center at: https://spars.samhsa.gov/content/data-entry-reports
Managers at organizations using the RecoveryLink dashboard application will inform Peers of GPRA requirements and provide detailed instructions for completion and submission.
