More than one person from an organization needs to work on a request.
An applicant or grantee needs someone else to upload a document, fill out certain questions, or sign off on their request (e.g., an executive director, co-worker, fiscal sponsor, etc.).
An applicant or grantee needs an efficient way for someone else to view, edit, and/or submit their application or follow-up form (e.g., a grant agreement, final report).

Results-Based Accountability™ (RBA™)
Results-Based Accountability™ (RBA™) is a disciplined way of thinking and acting to improve entrenched and complex social problems. Communities use RBA™ to improve the lives of children, youth, families, and adults. RBA is also used by organizations to improve the effectiveness of their programs.
RBA™ starts with the ENDS in mind and works backwards to MEANS. The approach focuses on community-level conditions of well-being that leaders agree to be accountable for achieving, and then uses common sense steps to organize collective action to make a positive impact. RBA Overview.
These documents provide background and guidance for how potential grantees should use Results-Based Accountability™ (RBA™) to create their grant proposal. RBA™ is a disciplined way of thinking and acting to improve entrenched and complex social problems.
