Result Oriented Management & Accountability

Results Oriented Management & Accountability (ROMA) is a management approach to the business of providing social services. Its goal is to enhance your performance as a catalyst for self-sufficiency in your community. ROMA is based on best practices developed for nonprofit institutions. These best practices apply to every level of your organization, from your tripartite board to your front-line staff.

ROMA is a tool for evaluating your community assessment, programmatic decision-making and funding. It informs how you serve your community and interact with clients to enhance your processes and outcomes.

We are preparing Community Action Agencies across Region VI for Next Generation ROMA. Assessment, evaluation and training are available from ROMA-certified staff and members of the Arkansas Community Action Agency Association. Contact Rose Adams for more info.

We are committed to providing regional ROMA certification training to two candidates from each state in the region to promote understanding of ROMA and to assist in regional implementation. These candidates are available in the region to promote ROMA practices and provide ROMA training at local or regional levels.

Consider ROMA training for your board, executive, program, and front-line staff. Contact your State Association for training opportunities.
