This brief defines results-based accountability (RBA) as a management tool that can facilitate collaboration among human service agencies, as a method of decentralizing services, and as an innovative regulatory process and explores the components of RBA systems. The brief also shows how RBA can be developed and used at different levels: state, community, agency, or program.
Minnesota and Oregon were among the first states in the nation to develop results-based accountability systems and, as such, have addressed many of the challenges that other states are facing. In this issue of The Evaluation Exchange we share our preliminary analysis of issues arising in the early implementation of these new systems and we include articles by those developing and implementing results-based accountability systems.
This issue of The Evaluation Exchange, Harvard Family Research Project's quarterly evaluation periodical, explores results-based accountability. The issue includes an overview of accountability systems, discussing both the opportunities and challenges they present, as well as HFRP's preliminary findings from our Results-Based Accountability Project, which is studying the approaches of several states in designing and implementing accountability systems.
This inaugural issue of The Evaluation Exchange, Harvard Family Research Project's quarterly evaluation periodical, focuses on evaluating systems reform.
