Random Moment Sampling

Random Moment Sampling (RMS)  

Random Moment Sampling (RMS) is the cost allocation process used by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) to accurately determine the administrative costs associated with the operation of any one of several state and federally administered programs that are supervised by ODJFS.

RMS involves a calculated number of random observations to be made quarterly on a randomly selected date and at an independently selected time.

The RMS system results in real time reporting, with agencies having the ability to access current RMS results and reports.  The RMS system enables each local agnecy to enter completed observations and tabulate, validate and analyze the data at any time during the reporting period.
