Strengthen Data Reporting - ADS 203.3.5.1 - USAID’s Performance Management Toolkit

Under ADS 203.3.5.1, “Data Quality Standards,” USAID missions should ensure that performance data meet five data quality standards—validity, integrity, precision, reliability, and timeliness. USAID missions should ensure that data quality standards are met so that performance data are useful in managing for results and credible for reporting.

Moreover, USAID’s Performance Management Toolkit provides guidance to operating units to periodically sample and review the implementing partner’s data to ensure completeness, accuracy, and consistency.

General Recommendations

  • Develop and implement a monitoring system to validate reported data regularly.
