Protocols and Review Elements

This evaluation process uses a comprehensive, multiple-method approach, much of which is gathered during a multi-day site visit at the lead agency’s location. These methods provide a full picture of compliance, context, and practices within each lead agency, and further explain how people benefit from these programs. Below is a brief description of the HCBS Lead Agency Review site visit activities and Methods of Data Collection. Click on the links to view meeting protocols and process definitions. The Lead Agency Review Team also has several Foundational Principles that guide our work.
