How Results-Based Accountability Can Help Your Nonprofit

Presenters: Bennett Pudlin and Ronald Schack, Charter Oak Group. These consultants support the legislature and State agencies in their use of RBA.

Results-Based Accountability (RBA) is an approach to planning, accountability, performance management, and program improvement that has been used by the Appropriations Committee of the Connecticut legislature for the last seven years. If you are a nonprofit organization that is funded by a state agency (or would like to be), you need to be aware of RBA.
