APPENDIX A. SCOPE OF WORK The University of Kentucky Center for Drug and Alcohol Research will be responsible for conducting the evaluation for the Center on Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) funded project awarded to the Volunteers of America Los Angeles program. The evaluation approach can be described as a pre/post test design. The design includes follow-up measures at 6 months post baseline for adult substance-using men and women involved in the criminal justice system. Baseline data will be collected at treatment entry, and supplemented with data collection (both process and outcome) while participants receive treatment and at follow-up for the outcome evaluation. The evaluation has three primary objectives: (1) To describe client characteristics at treatment entry into the CSAT funded project; (2) To examine short-term project outcomes based on GPRA 6 month measures; and (3) To complete a process evaluation. Reports will be provided to the VOALA program for regular COl meetings and annually to report evaluation findings. The evaluation team agrees to protect VOA client information and ensure confidentiality through standard human subjects protections protocols. This evaluation will comply with GPRA that includes, but is not limited to, collecting client outcomes at 6 months and at treatment discharge using GPRA Core Client Outcomes.
