The purpose of this letter is to give you an update on the new State and Federal accountability measures for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Network. These proposed measures are intended to ensure that both State and Federal administrators of CSBG are accountable to high standards of performance management. It is our expectation that these State and Federal accountability measures will be implemented alongside the new organizational standards for Community Action Agencies. In addition, as new Results Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA) next generation tools and protocols are completed in the next several months, the new State and Federal accountability measures we are proposing will help assure accountability and high quality at all levels.
As part of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Performance Management Framework, the Office of Community Services (OCS) analyzed the progress on the CSBG federal accountability measures for federal fiscal year (FFY) 2018. The purpose of this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) is to share the results of our efforts and the FFY 2019 goals.
