How much annual funding is dedicated to the following QRIS activities: technical assistance/quality improvement, rating and quality assurance, marketing, and financial incentives?

General Analysis Recommendations

Most questions about the level of funding dedicated to QRIS-related activities are not answered using specific data elements. Rather, information about the QRIS (funding, staffing, process, and implementation) should be collected and maintained in a historical document that should be updated yearly, at a minimum. This document will accompany the other data elements tools to provide the context for which data has been collected and will provide important information about the structure of the QRIS and how it has been implemented. A yearly evaluation report provides some of the information about the QRIS but states should also maintain historical documents to complete any gaps not covered in the evaluation.
