Core Competencies for State Flex Program Excellence: Self-Assessment

The primary goal of this assessment is to assist users in identifying and prioritizing opportunities for enhancing competency within their state Flex Program at the organization-level, not the individual level. Based on assessment outcomes, resources can be identified for areas in which the program self-identifies a gap or opportunity for improvement.
