  • This paper provides an overview of literature and evidence from various countries, discussing how social protection can promote social cohesion. Social cohesion has two aspects: relations amongst citizens and the ‘social contract’ between citizens and the state (Babajanian, 2012). During economic downturns and crisis periods such as the current COVID-19 pandemic, social cohesion can be undermined by citizens’ reduced trust in governments and institutions, political unrest, challenges in essential service delivery, poverty and economic hardship.

  • DFAT uses PPAs to assess how well implementing partners are delivering the services required in aid agreements and to inform future funding decisions. PPAs are DFAT owned documents stored in its information and records management systems. PPA information can be used for internal DFAT purposes and de-identified performance reporting to the public and the Government, including but not limited to, informing future procurement evaluations by tender Evaluation Committees, partner selection decisions, funding to multilateral organisations, partner governments and DFAT's aid program publications. Partners will be de-identified for the purposes of performance data analysis used in public reporting, unless there is a legal duty to do so. Partners must seek DFAT's written consent to share PPAs with third parties.

  • This matrix provides guidance to agreement managers, those approving PPAs, and implementing partners on the allocation of overall ratings against quality criteria. The matrix is a guide to support clear thinking and good practice in the consistent application of ratings. While the sub-questions are rated, only the overall quality rating for each criterion is used when reporting on delivery partner performance. In awarding ratings managers should take into account the delivery modality. For example, where investments are executed by national entities under the supervision of the partner being assessed, the scope of the assessment should be limited to the partner rather than the executing entity. An overall rating of 1-3 is classified as unsatisfactory and 4-6 is satisfactory.
