9-1 Subsistence Best Practices

Shannon Fagan posted Aug 4, 2022 8:41 PM

In this activity, evaluate the policy that you analyzed for your final project using the U.S. Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) best practices and leading practices in collaboration. Provide a high-level overview of how you think the policy that you analyzed is performing or did perform on these measures and recommendations for how efforts could be improved.

Best Practices and Leading Practices in Collaboration

· Define and articulate a common outcome.

· Establish mutually reinforcing or joint strategies.

· Identify and address needs by leveraging resources.

· Agree on roles and responsibilities.

· Establish compatible policies, procedures, and other means to operate across agency boundaries.

· Develop mechanisms to monitor, evaluate, and report on results.

· Reinforce agency accountability for collaborative efforts through agency plans and reports.

· Reinforce individual accountability for collaborative efforts through performance management systems.

The policy I will be evaluated against the GAO’s best practices is regarding a local polling place policy. More specifically, the local policy says, “The Registrars of Voters of the Town of Putnam, in accordance with the provisions of said statutes, shall provide a suitable polling place in each district” (Town of Putnam,1969, p 2). This policy talks about how the district is split up in two and how a polling place must be in each district. Currently, my town only has one polling place, which is against their policy.

Regarding outcomes and accountability it is limited for this policy. A measure of the outcomes would be the percentage of voter turnout among registered voters. You then could compare this to previous years before the polling places were not separate.

For bridging organizational cultures, there is no agreeance at all. The reason is that is because there is no clear policy definition. The state defines the same policy: “a congressional, senatorial or assembly district shall be a separate voting district and shall have its separate enrollment list” (Chapter 146, 1953, p 27). So on the state level, they require two separate lists for each district, not that they need a different polling place. This has made it so the policy is not clearly defined, which impacts the leadership because no one knows which is the right policy.

The clarity of roles and responsibilities is moderate. If the policy were clearly defined, then it would be higher. Currently, how the policy works, the local government is the one who enforces the policy, and state and federal impacts are impacted by how it is implemented and would penalize loc the policy is not being adequately enforced on the local level. Related to the responsibilities, we know the participants are the registered voters and local, state, and federal governments.

This policy’s resources are primarily through local budgets by allocating funds or taxes. The other resources come from the state government reimbursing local governments for purchases made for the election. There are no written agreements or guidance for this policy, but it would be beneficial if they created some.
