Monitoring is an integral management control technique and a Government Accountability Office (GAO) standard. It is an ongoing process that assesses the quality of a program participant's performance over a period of time. Monitoring provides information about program participants that is critical for making informed judgments about program effectiveness and management efficiency. It also helps in identifying instances of fraud, waste and abuse. This handbook establishes standards and provides guidance for monitoring Community Planning and Development Programs.
