Results Based Accountability

Results Based Accountability (RBA) is a framework that offers a disciplined way of thinking and taking action that communities can use to improve the conditions of well-being for children, youth, families, and communities (population accountability), and leaders can use to improve the quality and effectiveness of service systems, agencies, and programs (performance accountability). The RBA framework can be used to teach students, human service professionals, and others to improve professional practice. Whether used to redesign current undergraduate or graduate courses delivered to human service and education professionals, or to design/redesign existing programs, RBA presents a useful framework for program management and improvement for SOTA members.
