Measurement & Accountability Work Group

As the Action Alliance moves into its second decade of operation, it has become increasingly aware of the importance of identifying measurable outcomes to indicate progress in meeting its objectives. In 2020, the Action Alliance created the Measurement & Accountability Work Group, to help establish an evaluation plan for assessing Action Alliance priorities and recommend a system for monitoring progress in real time.

The efforts of this work group are supported by funding from Action Alliance Executive Committee (EXCOM) partner Johnson & JohnsonJanssen and operational support from Action Alliance EXCOM partner the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
