Abstract/Summary What is the underpinning theory of research performance and how can one apply logic models to evaluate performance? What are the appropriate system inputs, outputs, impacts, and metrics? These questions will be addressed in reference to a research portfolio management system developed by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH supports basic and applied biomedical research by funding grants and contracts. To measure the outcomes and impact of their programs, NIH staff conduct program evaluations and undertake targeted investigations of research portfolios. Recently, the NIH launched the electronic Scientific Portfolio Assistant (eSPA), a Web-based analytics system based on linked scientific databases. After describing the logic model upon which the eSPA system is based, we will describe practical applications of the system that show the relationship between policy and the inputs and outcomes of research.
