Monitoring Advisory

Monitoring Advisory cover
Resource Type

Updated July 2018

State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) implement behavioral highway safety programs with federal grant funds largely by suballocating 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 the Monitoring Advisory to enhance the state monitoring processes. The July 2018 version was modified to no longer refer to risk assessments as being required pre-award based on a recent federal clarification. The purpose of the assessments is to determine appropriate subrecipient monitoring. However, it is a best practice to evaluate risk prior to making a subaward.
