Leadership and Management

Dear ClASS Consultants and Interested Parties:

These updated and revised Administrative and Financial Modules (and accompanying Guidance documents) are based on recent revisions to U.S. government regulations. The 2 CFR 200 OMB Uniform Guidance: Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) was implemented by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as 45 CFR Part 75. The goal was to streamline guidance for Federal awards to ease administrative burden, strengthen oversight of Federal funds to reduce risks of waste, fraud and abuse, and increase efficiency and effectiveness of Federal awards.

For all trained ClASS Administrative and Finance consultants, we encourage you to review both the new Guidance and Modules in preparation for any future involvement in ClASS assessment activities.

ClASS Leadership and Management Module

Last updated: Wed, 07/03/2013 - 07:23

The Leadership and Management Module of the ClASS Toolkit is a guide for assessing leadership and management systems at treatment facilities and other institutions. This module is divided into four sections.

  1. Leadership
  2. Management
  3. Supervision
  4. Policy and Advocacy

Each section begins with a set of core competencies based on best practices from international organizations. This module is meant as a “stand alone” assessment tool or can be used in conjunction with the ClASS Administrative Module, which outlines some similar competencies but also includes areas unique to non-government organizations (i.e. governance).
