Performance Management

Performance management involves capturing information in an integrated performance management information system, on the implementation of planned activities using indicators agreed in strategic plans, producing performance reports and managing risks to the production of outputs and realisation of outcomes.

a) Government officials rigorously monitor performance against programme and project targets by tracking implementation of activities, production of outputs, and realisation of outcomes as set out in strategic plans, using an Integrated Performance Management Information System.

b) Accurate quarterly and annual performance reports are produced, publicly disseminated and debated.

c) Effective risk management practices are implemented to continuously improve performance management.

d) Civil society groups obtain copies of quarterly and annual performance reports and assess performance relative to strategic plan targets, they engage with government officials to establish any differences between plans and actual programme performance.

a) Government officials explain and justify their performance and decisions in implementing planned activities, producing planned outputs and realising planned outcomes and engage with civil society groups, who assess these explanations and justifications and performance controls, and call for corrective action (where necessary); corrective action is taken in response to evidence of poor performance management.
