Performance Management Plan Was Not Updated ADS 203.3

Automated Directives System (ADS) 203.3.3 states that operating units must prepare a complete performance management plan for each strategic objective within 1 year of approval of the strategic objective. It also notes that a performance management plan is a “tool used by an Operating Unit and Strategic Objective Team to plan and manage the process of assessing and reporting progress towards achieving a Strategic Objective.”

The performance management plan must provide performance indicators that include baseline levels and targets to be achieved. ADS states that usually, as part of the operating unit’s annual portfolio review process, the operating units should update these plans regularly with new performance information as programs develop and evolve.

General Recommendations

  • Update the performance management plan in accordance with USAID guidance and develop specific procedures to assign responsibility for regularly updating the document.
