Improve Reporting on Activities - USAID’s guidance for the FY 2009 Performance Plan and Report (PPR)

According to USAID’s guidance for the FY 2009 Performance Plan and Report (PPR), missions were required to provide information about the mission’s performance against targets for standard indicators, as well as a narrative description of the program status. The guidance requires the narrative to be frank and objective regarding the results in each program area.

Without more complete reporting in the PPR, stakeholders may receive an incomplete understanding regarding the level of support provided by the program and the difficulties faced by the program as a result of limited distribution and use of education materials. Without a written distinction or qualification of this information, USAID cannot plan effective follow-up activities to address identified barriers to implementation and ensure the maximum effectiveness of the program.

General Recommendations

  • Adjust future performance plan and reports to include written explanations or qualifications that more appropriately define the U.S. Government support that is reported.
