The Department shall review and provide consultation in this evaluation effort.
Monitoring is the review of the agency's compliance with contractual obligations, applicable administrative rules and legislation and insuring that Departmental funds are spent appropriately for services as specified in the grant agreement. Monitoring may include desk review and site review of agency performance.

Performance indicator data shall be routinely distributed to the agency as part of the monitoring process. Previous data on performance indicators shall be included in this distribution to allow for analysis of change in functioning over time.
