Provide Input on Accountability Decision Points

Overview

The Accountability Spoke Committee (also known as the Accountability Working Group or AWG) opened a window to collect online input on six accountability decision points on November 30. All the decision points are listed below and include a description, a PowerPoint, a recording of the PowerPoint and a survey. The recordings explain the decision point, federal and state policy that affects the decision point, the options being considered by the spoke members, and when applicable, the spoke committee’s recommendation. The survey allows you to give input on each specific accountability decision point through December 14th. You may view the survey questions before, during, or after watching the recording or reading the PowerPoint. However, once you submit your responses you may not enter back into it.
