10 So…. Now that you know a little bit about CPAC – just what is MAP?
11 MAP is… Management Assistance Program (MAP) is an administrative initiative by the NJ Division of Youth and Family Services to establish county level partnerships with United Ways, Human Services Advisory Councils and County Governments.
12 MAP is…. Designed to provide human service organizations with enhanced managerial and administrative skills to measure the effectiveness and efficiency of customer services.
13 The MAP Program uses Human Service Performance Standards The Standards serve as a common tool enabling organizations to internally evaluate their own level of performance, to develop planning skills, to prepare for review by a variety of assessment teams, and to serve as a training system for Governing Board members.
14 Human Services Performance Standards may serve as… An organization’s primary planning and self-evaluation guide As an organization’s annual performance plan which may serve as an RFP or provide data to complete an RFP A technical assistance service for organizations enabling them to maintain high standards of professional practice
15 Human Services Performance Standards may serve as… A common process for monitoring, evaluating and planning through which funding entities and Human Services planning bodies may assess a service organization’s performance A valuable tool to train and inform volunteer leadership and governing board members on a broad range of organizational matters.
16 How does MAP work? An agency uses the Human Services Standards to complete a MAP application binder used for Desk Top review. Organizations have their managers, governing board members, supervisors and staff to participate in the process.
17 How does MAP work (contd) The MAP application is reviewed by a community review team. Review Teams may do actual observation or Desk Top review (depends on the county). Review Team reviews documentation for each standard and rates each.
18 How does MAP work (contd) The Performance Planning and Assessment System Components: Administration Planning Program Community Relations Finance Property & Equipment Compliance
19 How does MAP work (contd) Review Team shares findings with the organization. The agency then receives a letter summarizing their review and providing a MAP score which is good for 5 years.
20 Resources Technical assistance resources such as Skills Banks or Volunteer Centers are available in counties that participate in MAP. Each county that uses the Human Services Performance Standards has its own resources.
21 Who uses MAP? The Human Services Performance Standards may be applied to organizations funded by Federal, State, County, City, United Ways and private foundation grantors.
22 For example… In Camden County, agencies that apply for County Human Service Grants, SSH/TANF, Emergency Shelter Grant and Federal FEMA dollars MUST BE MAPped.
23 Also… The United Way of Camden County and CPAC are piloting a “Common Funding Application”. This incorporates the use of a common application for funding under Camden County and United Way dollars with the MAP program.
