Making Performance Count: enhancing the accountability and effectiveness of Australian aid

Summary

This document is the performance framework for the Australian aid program.

Description

The Australian Government is now putting in place a new performance framework that operates across all levels of the aid program:

  • At a strategic level, there will be 10 high level targets to assess the aid program against key goals and priorities
  • At a country, regional and partner program level, performance benchmarks will be introduced to measure the effectiveness of our portfolio of investments
  • At a project level, robust quality systems will ensure that funding is directed to investments making the most difference.

A key principle underlying the framework is that funding at all levels of the aid program will be linked to progress against a rigorous set of targets and performance benchmarks.
