State Flex Program Quality Improvement Activities
This project will analyze the state Flex Grant Applications and related revisions to their budgets and work plans to identify and summarize the range and scope of activities undertaken in the core Flex Program areas related to quality and performance improvement. Data extraction tools are being developed to summarize the activities proposed by state Flex Programs. Completion of the analysis and summary of the grant applications is anticipated by early January 2006, which will be followed by interviews, using semi-structured interview protocols, of five to ten state Flex Coordinators to obtain additional information on their quality and performance improvement initiatives. Products of this project will include a briefing paper summarizing the range of quality and performance improvement activities undertaken by state Flex Programs.
