Step V - Evaluation 

A facility should evaluate Program progress based on the timeline created during Step III.  This evaluation reveals if the facility has met the goals and objectives set by the Program.  The Team assesses the Program’s success by measuring benchmarks set for the various goals and objectives.  The Team should document the accomplishments and challenges, and update stakeholder groups on the Program’s progress.  Based on the findings of the evaluation, the Team should revise the Program to address needed changes and incorporate new goals and objectives.  The updated Program undergoes implementation and is reevaluated after a period of time.
