Grant Management Training
If you have received a grant from the Office of Adult and Juvenile Justice Assistance (OAJJA) it is essential that you receive training in how to administer your grant (whether you are a new or continuing grantee). DCJ’s OAJJA Training Team developed on-line training modules designed to take you from the beginning of your grant through the close of your grant.
These trainings can be accessed using the links below. After you complete each module, we ask that you take a very brief survey to let us know if that module met your needs. You can access the brief survey using the Survey Monkey web link found on the next to last slide of each module.
Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Mandatory Federal Performance Measurement Reporting
In addition to the quarterly and final financial and narrative reporting required by DCJ/OAJJA, the federal Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) requires all JAG funding recipients also report on select performance measures quarterly (due 15 days after the calendar quarter ends 1/15, 4/15, 7/15 and 10/15). The system for federal reporting is the Performance Measurement Tool and can be accessed by going to: https://www.bjaperformancetools.org/.
Grants funded with 2012-2014 JAG funds: For grants with grant numbers that start with 2012, 2013 or 2014 (example 2014-DJ-15-005678-04-2) please view the JAG Module 105: Performance Measurement and Federal Reporting training.
Performance Measurement and Federal Reporting for grant numbers that start with 2015 or 2016 (example 2015-DJ-15-005678-04-2): You will be using the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s Revised Performance Measurement Tool. All grantees whose grant number begins with 2015 or 2016 will be required to enter data quarterly into the Performance Measurement System. All grantees funded with 2015 or 2016 funds are required to enter data into the General Information Module, Activity Program Selector and Goals and Objectives (Goals and Objectives are only done every six months instead of quarterly). To see the training on these areas go to:
2015 and 2016 Grantees with over $25,000 in funding will then have to enter data into Program Activity Questionnaires. You should have received information from your grant manager regarding the program activity area in which you should report. If you need assistance deciding which program area to report on contact Anna Lopez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can access training on your Activity Area using the following links:
