Monitoring Advisory

Monitoring Advisory cover
Resource Type

Updated November 2020

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 August 2020 update contains general revisions to language, deletes references to the 2006 survey results and adds a new subsection on Virtual Monitoring During a Pandemic. The online SHSO monitoring-related forms were updated in early November 2020. This includes replacements, a new Appendix section on Virtual Monitoring and 41 new forms and policies.
