Meet the essential requirements of a monitoring program
Partnership's needs from a monitoring program
monitoring findings (data and information) to answer three types of evaluation questions
Did actions happen as expected? Were expected outputs produced?
(JLARC version) Are actions in the Action Agenda being implemented as proposed
Did the expected results develop when actions were taken?
(JLARC version) Are the actions in Puget Sound having the intended effect?
(status and trend)
Have intermediate and/or ultimate outcomes developed as expected?
Are outcomes more likely to occur given the actions and their results?
(JLARC version) Is the collection of efforts achieving Puget Sound recovery goals?
monitoring findings to improve knowledge of recovery progress and recovery efforts
monitoring findings and updated knowledge to adapt and improve recovery and protection efforts
specific actions to address the deficiencies JLARC staff identified ..."
estimates of any costs or resource needs
Deficiencies JLARC Staff identified
Implementation monitoring includes only NTAs and is self-reported
A limited number of actions have been assessed for effectiveness, subject to availability of data from partners
Targets not set for all recovery goals
(Is this a monitoring deficiency?) The Action Agenda does not specify actions needed to meet recovery targets
Monitoring structure limits effectiveness
Clear governance structure
Partnership has leadership role
Partnership does not oversee decisions
Accountability mechanisms in place
It is unclear to whom and for what PSEMP is accountable
Types of decisions to be made
Who has authority to make decisions
Sharing staff contributes confusion
Leadership by a manager or director
Easy access to credible information
No data repository to allow data sharing
Directly link scientific findings to management decisions
Lack of PSEMP engagement in recovery planning limits ability to integrate monitoring into planning decisions
Inclusive and comprehensive science
Unclear whether PSEMP reviews ongoing, systematic monitoring to identify and fill gaps and information needs
No technical oversight committee
No public advisory process
