SQAC Measure Nomination, Round 1

The Statewide Quality Advisory Committee (SQAC) is accepting nominations for measures to be evaluated. Interested persons or parties may submit recommendations electronically through this SurveyMonkey tool until March 16, 2012.

After the close of the nomination window on March 16, SQAC staff will compile the list of nominated measures and send them to Committee members for review. Committee members may formally propose that a measure be evaluated and staff will work to develop preliminary ratings for measures proposed for evaluation.

There may be additional opportunities for measure nomination in Spring 2012.

All proposed measures with complete supporting materials will be posted
online prior to the third meeting of the SQAC.
