Evaluation Policies

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is committed to rigorous evaluation as a key component of its public health programs to help us and partner organizations understand and maximize their benefit to society. In May 2017, SAMHSA developed an updated evaluation policies and procedures (P&P) document to guide and standardize evaluations of our work. Internal and external stakeholders should refer to the evaluation P&P document when planning and conducting evaluations. A copy of the updated evaluation P&P document can be found here.
