Verify and document reported results periodically for PMP - (ADS) 203.3.4 - ADS 596, Management’s Responsibility for Internal Control

USAID’s Automated Directives System (ADS) 203.3.4, Selecting Performance Indicators for Performance Management Plans, states that performance indicators are used to observe progress and to measure actual results compared to expected results. Specifically, ADS 203.3.4.2 states that performance indicators should be directly related to the activity and closely track the results they are intended to measure.

Moreover, the guidance states that the selected performance indicators should measure changes that are clearly and reasonably attributable to USAID efforts. Moreover, ADS 596, Management’s Responsibility for Internal Control, requires managers to review performance measures and indicators. Additionally, USAID’s Guidebook for Managers and Cognizant Technical Officers on Acquisition and Assistance states that contracting officer’s technical representatives are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of all reports submitted by their implementing partners.
