This training and technical assistance (TTA) resource for grantees under the Bureau of Justice Assistance's (BJA's) Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) provides an overview of grantee requirements related to Performance Metric Tracking (PMT).
PMT provides quarterly updates to BJA and the National SAKI TTA team. These updates include the grantee's inventory of unsubmitted SAKs and SAK testing progress, as well as information on the investigation and prosecution of cases that result. The PMT report also asks questions about grant activity during the quarter, including working group and partner activity; development and implementation of new policies, procedures, and protocols; trainings conducted or attended; and the creation of new positions or use of overtime. In January and July of each calendar year, qualitative data on the goals and objectives of the grantee over the previous 6 months are reported into the PMT. A report from the PMT must be uploaded into the Grants Management System (GMS). As a requirement of SAKI funding, it is expected that a full inventory of unsubmitted SAKs will be completed within the first 6 months of the grant period. To track the progress of the inventories still in process, BJA asks that grantees submit inventory numbers monthly to their TTA site. Frequently asked questions about the PMT are posed and answered in this resource.
