This chapter explicates the framework of results-oriented accountability (ROA). The framework of ROA builds on a common foundation of clinical practice and policy management, which conceives of child welfare interventions as cycling through five successive stages: (1) outcomes monitoring, (2) data analysis, (3) research review, (4) evaluation, and (5) quality improvement.
