Introducing the Data Systems Improvement Toolkit from the Tribal Evaluation Institute (TEI)

The Tribal Evaluation Institute (TEI) is pleased to announce the release of our Data Systems Improvement Toolkit! This resource is designed for tribal programs planning to develop or improve their data systems. Program and evaluation staff who have experience with and oversee changes to their existing data systems will find this toolkit informative and helpful.
The Data Systems Improvement Toolkit includes five modules.
–Module 1: Choosing a System and Working with a Vendor or Developer
–Module 2: Documenting and Improving Data System Processes
–Module 3: Protecting Data Ownership and Privacy
–Module 4: Displaying and Reporting Data
–Module 5: Optimizing Your Current Data System
Visitors to the TEI Web site can download the complete toolkit or access individual modules, including modifiable versions of several tools.
Some readers will find that one module or even one tool can address their needs. Others may find it helpful to access each module in the order they are presented. For many, the right approach lies somewhere in between.
The TEI team is available to provide technical assistance for this toolkit and other data system needs. Please contact Erin Geary at 218-464-1260 or
