ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Getting to Outcomes 2004: Promoting Accountability through Methods and Tools for Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation is a revision of Getting to Outcomes 1999: Methods and Tools for Self-Evaluation and Accountability. Getting to Outcomes 2004, or GTO-04, has been authored by a team of substance abuse prevention researchers dedicated to helping community organizations reach positive outcomes through a process of answering ten questions that contain all the elements needed for successful planning, implementation, and evaluation (PIE). This manual represents a collaborative effort to synthesize evidence-based knowledge and translate it into evidence-based practice.

Getting To Outcomes was first developed by Wandersman, Imm, Chinman, and Kaftarian for the National Center for the Advancement of Prevention, funded by the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, and was based, in part, on the review of over 4 0 books and manuals on evaluation.

The authors would like to acknowledge all the contributions they received on the earlier version of this manual (GTO-1999), most notably Shakeh Kaftarian. Currently a health scientist administrator in the Division of Epidemiology, Services and Prevention Research of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Kaftarian was a coauthor of GTO-1999 along with Drs. Wandersman, Imm, and Chinman. In addition, a number of individuals contributed to GTO-1999's concepts, references, examples, formats, readability, and overall usefulness to the substance abuse prevention field. They are Phyllis Ellickson, Karol Kumpfer, Nancy Jacobs, Alvera Stern, Wendy Rowe, and Beverly Watts Davis. In addition, significant assistance was provided by Patricia Ebener and Sarah Hunter (RAND). The manual was compiled and edited by Tania Gutsche (RAND).

Certain parts of questions ©and© in GTO-04 draw on the PIE system developed by Wandersman, Flaspohler, Imm, Chinman and their colleagues (Flaspohler et al., in press; Wandersman et al., 2001).

Additionally, the authors would like to acknowledge the local substance abuse prevention staff working on the South Carolina State Incentive Grant Program and their colleagues at the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE) for their
