Annual Objective:
Precise, time-based, and measurable actions that support the completion of

! The objective should cover one budget year.
! Up to 5 annual objectives may be written for each project period goal
! Should be S.M.A.R.T., short, concise, free of jargon, and easily understood
S.M.A.R.T.
S = Specific: an objective should be precise and should focus on a single result. A specific objective answers the questions, “who,
what, where, and how?”
M = Measurable: an objective should include specific criteria or measures that indicate whether the objective has been met. A good
measure answers the question, “How will we know if we have accomplished the objective?
A = Achievable: an objective should be attainable and within the center’s or program’s reach.
R = Realistic: an objective should be realizable given the time, resources, and activities proposed and available.
