ROA & POW



General Information

Updated: June 22, 2017


Here is the policy concerning annual reports of accomplishments and plans of work submission deadline and quality for UF/IFAS Extension county faculty: ROA/POW Policy

  • Your 2017 ROA and 2018 POW report is due December 8, 2017 as one single document
  • There have been a few modifications for 2017. If you are using your 2016 ROA document, you must open the detailed guidelines for the 2017 RAO and add in any changes (in yellow). If you have not completed this step in the past we encourage you to open a new document and enter your data.
  • Suggested Timeline for completing your 2017 ROA and 2018 POW EARLY and without stress.
  • Review each section for changes. (some of you may not have added prior years information, so look at all sections and make yours look the same as the sample)
  • The best action for you if you submitted a ROA last year is that you start with that document and turn all old activities, outcomes and impacts from 2017 to BLACK COLOR INK.
  • Add in any proposed activities, expected outcomes and impacts in RED COLOR INK for your 2018 POW
  • For your 2017 ROA, report your new publications, grants, accomplished activities, outcomes and impacts and any new information in BLUE COLOR INK.
  • Detailed guidelines for the 2017 ROA and 2018 POW as a MS Word document. (this document is like the blank below but has some sample data, use the one below in preparing your report if you do not have a 2016 ROA/2017 POW)
  • MS Word Document of 2017 ROA and 2018 POW with no instructions. County Faculty need to use this one to prepare their document, a single document for your ROA and POW - use RED for your POW and BLUE for your ROA.
  • Sample objectives to review: 4-H Youth Development, additional 4-H, FCS, Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Horticulture.
  • IFAS Workload Data to be entered by County Faculty Due January 12, 2018
  • Self Appraisals due to your DED on or before December 15, 2017


  • CEDs, below is a template for you to use for your 2017 Report of Accomplishments and 2018 Plan of Work in your "Program Area" for being a CED.

    Review of Extension Teaching

    Teaching groups in a classroom or workshop setting is one of the many venues we use to instruct our Extension clientele. However, most of us have never received training on how to be an effective teacher, and it is difficult to hone our skills unless we receive honest feedback. This tool was developed to facilitate a critique of the teaching skills of county faculty and program assistants by CEDs. It may be less intimidating if a mentor or peer conducts the review.
