Program Targets Were Imprecise - ADS 203.3.4.5 - ADS 203.3.7.1

According to Automated Directives System (ADS) 203.3.4.5, USAID operating units should set performance targets that are ambitious, but can realistically be achieved within the stated timeframe and with the available resources. Targets should also be established for the end of the assistance and may be set for the interim years as well.

Additionally, ADS 203.3.7.1 requires mission personnel, during their portfolio review process, to address the adequacy of the performance indicators selected in the performance management plan and expectations that activities will meet their planned targets and results.

General Recommendations

  • Establish accurate performance targets for the end of the contract period for all indicators reported by the program.
