Contractor Data Did Not Accurately Reflected Outreach Efforts - (ADS) Chapter 203 - section 203.3.5.2 - ADS 203.3.5.1

USAID’s Automated Directives System (ADS) Chapter 203, Assessing and Learning, section 203.3.5.2, states that missions should be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of their data and the extent to which the data’s integrity can be trusted to influence management decisions.

Additionally, under ADS 203.3.5.1, performance data should meet data quality standards for validity, integrity, precision, reliability, and timeliness. In particular, performance data should be sufficiently precise to present a fair picture of performance and enable decision making at the appropriate level.

General Recommendations

  • Require contractors to provide additional written guidance to subcontractors on the purpose of the outreach protocols and the need for accurate reporting of outreach data that exceed targets.
