Engaging Diverse Communities in Research

Results-Based Accountability (RBA)

NGCG believes that individuals at all levels of an organization are able to produce measurable results for their clients and the communities they serve, when provided with the right skills training and tools.

Results-Based Accountability (RBA) is a disciplined, step-by-step approach used to improve the performance of programs, agencies and service systems. Developed by Mark Friedman, founder of the Fiscal Policy Studies Institute, RBA has been successfully used in over 40 states and countries by a variety of community groups, systems, and other public and private partners.

NGCG uses RBA as a management tool to monitor program progress and evaluations. RBA helps explain why some programs are succeeding and others are failing, and allows users to define areas for improvement. Clearly articulated results (goals), supported by data, are tracked and reported to our clients to share progress and results.

A cohesive results-based accountability system includes the following components:

  • A strategic planning process
  • Goals and indicator
  • Benchmarks or targets
  • Mechanisms for regular reporting to community and among other stakeholders
