DISCLAIMER: GHSA guidance documents have not been updated to include the requirements in the IFR published in the Federal Register on May 23, 2016, which implement the FAST Act.

State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) implement behavioral highway safety programs with federal grant funds largely by sub-allocating funding to other state and local agencies and nonprofits. SHSOs must monitor these grants to ensure that subrecipients are spending their funds in the manner intended.

GHSA developed this Monitoring Advisory to enhance the state monitoring processes. It was originally reviewed by the GHSA Executive Board and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and adopted by the GHSA membership in September 2006. The Monitoring Advisory was updated in 2012. This new updated version, which includes sample State forms to address the FY 2016 Uniform Guidance pre-award risk assessment requirement, was completed in November 2015.
