Why Do We Have Results Oriented Goals?
Results-Oriented Management and Accountability is a performance-based management system. Using outcomes as its foundation, ROMA's aims are continuous program improvement and accountability. Community action is about identifying and addressing causes and conditions. ROMA helps us measure progress in reaching our goals.
Results-Oriented Goals are vastly different from Standard Operational Reporting and Goals. Why?
Results-Oriented Goals are focused not on how many people are served daily due to Agency assistance, but rather the effect of the services received. If a family is aided, did that lead to an improvement in their economic standing? Did the family find additional resources that were not previously available due to the aforementioned improvement?
Standard Operating Goals focus simply on the end result of services rather than the effect a service may have on a low-income individual or a family suffering from the effects of poverty.
