9 Can a performance management system and an accreditation system for state and LHDs support each other? Performance management system forms the foundation for establishing accreditation process Accreditation system can stimulate improved performance, indicators, assessment process  Can be a “natural” evolution from performance management system KS will be well positioned and ready (remember, that train is coming……)
