You will need to provide a formal written report to the TIS program funder, the Australian Government Department of Health (DoH), using the IAHP twelve month performance template and the TIS six month performance template.
If you need assistance with either report, see the section on Tips for performance reporting below, or the document, Guidance on filling out your performance report. This document comprises a good practice example of reporting against all five National TIS Performance Indicators, along with general tips. Reference is made to the Tackling Indigenous Smoking programme logic, which comes from the TIS program monitoring and evaluation framework. This program logic diagram is useful to keep in a prominent place so all of your team members can refer to the elements and intended outcomes of the TIS program.
The performance report is your opportunity to show the difference your program is making in the communities across your region. As there is a limited number of words, you need to make them count. The NBPU has developed a number of tips for presenting the progress you are making, which should be read along with the guidance document and good practice example:
