Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) Tracking Form

The Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) is designed to assist State CSBG Office and CAA staff to identify and monitor progress in addressing CAA performance issues identified through routine CSBG monitoring activities which do not involve violations of law or pose chronic or acute risks to the financial or operational viability of the organization. Failure to fully implement a QIP may lead to the creation of a Corrective Action Plan. The attached Tracking Form template has been designed to provide assistance to State CSBG Offices in developing both Quality Improvement Plans and Corrective Action Plans and can be modified/adapted by states for their own use.

Technical Assistance Plan (TAP) Tracking Form

In order to help CEEs progress towards meeting the Standards, IM 138 provides for the development of Technical Assistance Plans (TAPs). In addition, IM 138 addresses the need for CEEs to be making progress and the TAP can provide documentation of such progress toward meeting all of the Organizational Standards. The TAP template provided by the Organizational Standards Center of Excellence is a tool that States and CEEs may use and or modify to document such movement forward. It is provided as a resource and designed to meet the needs outlined in IM 138 to show progress, responsibility, and eventually full compliance with the Organizational Standards.
