At the Vander Weele Group, our work is guided by a philosophy we call Meaningful Monitoring. Meaningful Monitoring is a mindset, a skill set, and a strategic approach to grants monitoring that asks not only if programs are compliant and meeting objectives, but whether they are meeting them well. It's possible for a program to meet all its legal obligations and still fail to achieve its mission.
Systematizes compliance processes so leadership can focus on what’s important
Identifies program improvements rooted in practitioners’ perspectives
Reveals obstacles to success not easily captured by quantitative data alone
Promotes technical assistance, grantee training, and non-punitive plans for improvement*
Captures and shares best practices, successful strategies, and resources
*Except in cases of fraud, waste, and abuse or other violations of federal and state law.
