Results Oriented Management and Accountability Training

 

Results Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA) is a framework that incorporates the use of outcomes/results into the administration, management, operation, and evaluation of human services.

The CSBG Reauthorization Act made ROMA implementation a requirement for agencies to receive federal CSBG funds.

Local Community Action Agencies are encouraged to undertake a number of ROMA implementation actions that focus on results oriented management and accountability.

Julie Hackerd is a Nationally Certified Results Oriented Management and Accountability Trainer.  She has over 25 years of experience working in not-for-profit management, including 20 years working for community action agencies, 10 years with Head Start, and 4 years in workforce development.
