This exemplary practice streamlines the grants evaluation process for the Office of Native American Programs. Alaska ONAP staff developed an Overall Performance Assessment method that became the basis for modifications in the approach ONAP uses to review grant applications. This exemplary practice has been codified as Chapter One "Overall Performance Assessment (OPA) Guidelines" in the most recent edition of the Grants Evaluation Guidebook for ONAP.
