Process for Evaluating Training Effectiveness is Inadequate - ADS 253.3 - ADS 203.3.2

ADS 253.3, “Policy Directives and Required Procedures,” require missions that expend USAID funds for participant training to design and implement the training for results and impact. Specifically, missions must report on their participant training activities as part of their broader performance measurement, evaluation, and reporting requirements.

According to ADS 203.3.2, “Performance Management,” USAID missions and offices and their assistance objective teams are responsible for measuring progress toward the results identified in the planning stage to achieve foreign assistance objectives.

General Recommendations

  • Establish and implement procedures for systematically following up with training participants to assess the impact and effectiveness of training.
