As the statutory agent for public health program oversight and accountability, the State Health Officer and Commissioner of the Bureau for Public Health is responsible for monitoring the operations, administration and coordination of local boards of health and health officers and working in conjunction with local boards of health to conduct monitoring through subawardee agreements for state and/or federal funds and through required programmatic and fiscal reports and records submitted throughout the fiscal year. The Center for Local Health coordinates monitoring among Bureau offices and centers and serves as a central point of contact on the local public health system. Monitoring is a continuous function that uses the systematic collection of data on specific indicators to provide management and key stakeholders with indications of the extent of progress and achievement of objectives (Figure 1). The Bureau's monitoring includes the release of statewide data and reports (Figure 2).
