Reported Results Did Not Meet Data Quality Standards - ADS 203.3

To measure performance effectively and make informed management decisions, missions must ensure the collection and availability of quality data.

USAID provides its assistance objective teams with extensive guidance to help them manage for improved results. Among this guidance is Automated Directives System (ADS) 203.3.5.2, which states that the USAID mission or office and assistance objectives teams should be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of their data and the extent to which the data’s integrity can be trusted to influence management decisions. According to ADS 203.3.5.1, “Data Quality Standards,” USAID missions should ensure that performance data meets data quality standards for validity, integrity, precision, reliability, and timeliness.
