2017-2018 ASSESSMENT OF ADMINISTRATIVE MECHANISM (AAM) REPORT
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) requires that all Ryan White Part A Planning Councils conduct an annual assessment of the administrative mechanism (AAM) to evaluate how efficiently and rapidly grantees disburse funding to the areas of greatest need within the eligible metropolitan areas (EMA). The purpose of the survey is to evaluate the degree to which providers were satisfied with BPHC’s administration of Ryan White Part A funding. The Boston EMA Ryan White Planning Council’s role was to review the survey results and provide recommendations to BPHC in areas where improvements were necessary.
