  • In response to our initial report, the Department has taken steps to improve program data, has adopted a standard definition of recidivism, and has identified additional measures of program success.
  • The Department's data verification efforts are currently focused on education data and less focused on other program data, such as substance abuse treatment data.
  • The Department should expand its review of data to include substance abuse, wellness, and funded self-betterment programs.
