Impact Indicators Not Tracked - ADS 203.3.4

USAID’s results-oriented management approach relies on its managers’ consideration of performance information when making decisions. Sound decisions require accurate, current, reliable information, and the benefits of USAID’s results-oriented approach depend on the quality of the performance information available.

Such information includes performance indicators, which are an important element in measuring progress. USAID’s Automated Directives System Section 203.3.4 notes that performance indicators are used to observe progress and to measure actual results compared with expected results. Performance indicators help to show whether an operating unit or strategic objective team is progressing toward its objectives.

General Recommendations

  • Develop and implement a plan with milestones to track progress toward meeting impact indicators.
