The Industrial Automation Manufacturing innovative Strategic Training Achieving Results (I AM iStar) grant project needed a program management resource to monitor their outside services contracts.

I AM iStar edited the document using MS Word, removing the MoHealthWINs grant project information and replaced it with the I AM iStar grant project information and saved it as a MS Word document titled “Monitoring Tool” and uploaded it to SkillsCommons with a CC-BY derivative attribution license.
