Managing the Flex Program

Future funding for the national Flex Program is dependent on strong program planning, operations and demonstrable outcomes through reporting. This can only be accomplished through competent program management on the part of state Flex Program leadership. State Flex Program proficiency in the following areas contribute to excellence in Flex Program management:

  • Managing the grant
  • Managing contracts and consulting services
  • Continuously assessing the program
  • Regularly reporting grant progress and outcomes
