Development of Performance Management Plans (USAID PAKISTAN)
Partner: USAID Pakistan
SDPI was hired as a consultant by one of the contractors of USAID (QED, Empower Pakistan Performance) to provide Monitoring and Evaluation support for its performance program. The purpose of this assignment was to help establish a working monitoring and evaluation mechanism. SDPI deputed a team of four persons at USAID PAKISTAN performance to work as the M&E team and to help establish a running operation within a period of one month and hand it over to the full time staff.
The assignment included working with the 14 partners of USAID programs in Pakistan and finally arriving a mutual understanding on targets and indicators for all these programs. This had to be achieved based on one central document called the Performance Management Plan (PMP) that was also supposed to be worked on. During the period of the assignment, SDPI helped work on 4 drafts of the PMP, held 3 partner discussion sessions and also worked on chalking out a strategy for reliable data sources that were to be used by the program. SDPI was also working on creating a large-scale survey of all the 26 target districts that are part of the programs, identifying key indicators and ways in which to calculate such indicators.
