A grant's performance is measured by achievements against programmatic goals. If achievements are not meeting their given goal allocations, the grant's performance risk may be impacted.
Narrative goals are question and answer goals. Responsible Individuals may answer the question posed by the goal. An example of a narrative goal is “How successful was the grant-related activity this period?”
