Juvenile Justice: A Time Frame for Enhancing Grant Monitoring Documentation and Verification of Data Quality Would Help Improve Accountability and Resource Allocation Decisions
Eileen Regen larence (au)
From FY 2006 through 2008, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) within the Dept. of Justice (DOJ) awarded $1.2 billion in funds through approx. 2,000 grants in support of its mission to help states and communities prevent and reduce juvenile delinquency and victimization and improve their juvenile justice systems. OJJDP awards grants to states, territories, localities, and organizations to address a variety of issues, such as reducing juvenile substance abuse, combating Internet crimes against children, preventing youth gang involvement, and providing youth mentoring services. The scope and admin. of OJJDP grants also vary, ranging from private organization recipients that implement programs directly in a single community to states that administer grants by awarding the funds they receive to subgrantees to implement programs locally and statewide. Assessing the performance of these programs through grant monitoring is a key mgt. tool to hold grantees accountable for implementing programs as agreed to in their awards, to verify they are making progress toward the objectives of their programs, and to ensure that grant funds are used in support of OJJDP's mission. DOJ's Office of Justice Programs (OJP) establishes grant monitoring policies for its components, including OJJDP. In 2008, the DOJ Office of the Inspector General (OIG) identified grant mgt., including maintaining proper oversight of grantees to ensure grant funds are used as intended, as a critical issue and among the department's top mgt. challenges. This report assesses OJJDP's efforts to monitor the implementation of its grant programs. It addresseses the following questions: (1) What processes does OJJDP have in place to monitor the performance of its juvenile justice grants, and to what extent does it record results of its monitoring efforts to ensure transparency and accountability? (2) How, if at all, does OJJDP use performance measurement data to make programming and funding decisions, and to what extent does it verify the quality of these data? Includes recommendations.
