- The majority of the activities were technical assistance to
the eight leadership teams on a monthly basis. The technical

BoQ tool; however, only three had a pre/post score from year 1

elements “in place” increased from 17.6% to 44.3%, which is an
increase of 22.7%. All are on track to reaching fidelity by the
end of the grant.
