About Program Evaluation

Measuring the effectiveness and efficiency of a program or Program evaluation is a systematic method for collecting, analyzing, and using information to answer questions about projects, policies and programs.  Program evaluations highlight improved hazardous materials transportation safety mission performances, policies, and resource decision making.

As personnel and financial resources are constrained for hazmat safety initiatives, prioritization of resources among OHMS programs should reflect in decision making.

Findings and recommendations resulting from this evaluation will provide OHMS with a roadmap for further evolving and implementing programs, and advancing its vision of becoming an effective data-driven, risk-based organization.

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) conducts program evaluations to assess the Office of Hazardous Materials Safety (OHMS) risk management practices, strategies, plans, results, and opportunities.
