The report is targeted toward agency administrators implementing continuous transdermal alcohol monitoring technology to supervise offenders with alcohol problems. It focuses on administrative concerns about program implementation.

The report contains three sections on: cultivating leadership and fostering agency support; organizing a preparatory field study, including strategies for training and dealing with the media; and evaluating the program through a cost/benefit analysis.
