Pennsylvania Effective Utilization of PA SILC Staff in SPIL Monitoring and Evaluation

The Pennsylvania SILC has adopted a staff model in which employees are trained to specialize in issue areas based on the goals and objectives identified in the SPIL. These staff monitor implementation and progress as activities are conducted to accomplish each SPIL goal or objective. This approach is effective because the PA SILC staff work as a team, exchanging ideas and suggestions on SPIL-related projects and activities based on each person's area of expertise. This staff model allows the PA SILC to effectively evaluate implementation of SPIL goals and objectives, and determine whether or not to explore alternative methods and/or approaches. The use of specialized staff and teamwork gives the PASILC the appropriate feedback with which the organization provides direction to the IL community in meeting consumer service needs.
