In 2018, CBHSQ was reorganized through a Federal Register Notice (FRN) to ensure compliance with the requirements set forth in the 21st Century Cures Act. CBHSQ, in partnership with SAMHSA’s program-originating centers, is responsible for providing:
- Centralized planning and management of program evaluation across SAMHSA
- Oversight and management of agency quality improvement
The CBHSQ’s Office of Evaluation (OE) strives to evaluate programs in an integrated manner combining process, outcome, impact, and cost-benefit analysis of evaluation activities.
