What This Rating Means

Results Not Demonstrated

A rating of Results Not Demonstrated (RND) indicates that a program has not been able to develop acceptable performance goals or collect data to determine whether it is performing.
  • The program is lacking in a clear design that links all program projects to its performance goals. The program engages in many very diverse activities and it is not evident that all the activities are the most effective or efficient methods of meeting the program's defined purpose and long-term performance goals.
  • The program does not collect performance data from all its grantees nor does it use performance data to hold grantees accountable for improving outcomes. The lack of performance data results in the program being unable to set annual goals.
  • Mental Health PRNS needs to further develop performance meaures. The program has not yet developed its long-term measure of client functioning (consumers' perception of whether they have greater ability to deal with daily problems in their lives as a result of treatment) and does not have procedures in place to measure efficiencies.
