Biennial Review of the DAAPP for Employees

Biennial Review

The Office of Human Resources serves as the program coordinator for DAAPP for Employees, including but not limited to updates and coordination of program information, coordination of the annual notification to employees, and input into the program biennial review report. The College is committed to monitoring and assessing the effectiveness of NOVA's DAAPP and any changes that need to be made. Therefore, Human Resources is responsible for coordinating a Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program for Employees Committee. The DAAPP for Employees Committee is responsible for determining the effectiveness of the prevention program and ensures that the standards conducted are fair and consistently enforced.

The DAAPP for Employees sub-committee will utilize program review assessment methods for the biennial report to include:
  • focus group outcomes
  • training evaluations
  • employee surveys
  • EAP participation usage data
  • administrative overview

NOVA is committed to conducting an annual review of its program to: 1.) determine its effectiveness and implement changes if they are needed; 2.) ensure that the drug, alcohol and inhalant abuse violations and sanctions imposed by NOVA are consistently enforced; and 3.) prepare a biennial review report that meets full compliance with the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) 34 CFR Part 86.100.
