States are required to

  • Develop at least one evidence-based or -informed strategy measure (ESM) for each selected national performance measure (NPM).
  • Finalize an action plan that lists state priority needs, objectives, strategies and activities, and ESMs.

In this way, process inputs/outputs are captured in ESMs, which describe the short-/medium-term outcomes of NPMs, which move the needle on long-term impact national outcome measures (NOMs).
