Laura House, Pretrial Services Agency
This presentation will present exemplary models of Federal departments and agencies that are making critical progress in integrating performance management and evaluation to inform evidence-based decision making  in policy, budget and programmatic areas.  It will identify important values and principles that appear to guide these model organizations in their successful integration efforts as well as key factors that appear to contribute to success.  In addition, the presentation will highlight strategies, approaches, and formal processes that these organizations undertake to bring together varying sources of evidence, staff and focus areas and how these efforts enhance their ability to address organizational progress on goals and inform decision-making.  The presentation also will discuss barriers and challenges for integrating various sources of evidence for decision-making, including issues such as resources, capacity, and existing communication and collaboration processes, in both exemplary and alternative models on the integration continuum.
