Results for SDGsRBM system

How we track results

Results-based management means a pooled fund can be managed as a learning instrument. It allows a steering committee to revise a fund’s theory of change, adjust its risk management strategy, and share tangible experiences with other funds.

The MPTF Office has developed a results-based management (RBM) system, specific to interagency pooled funds, that enables monitoring of programmatic and financial performance indicators. All information is reported according to IATI and OECD/DAC standards.

The RBM system simplifies the process of assessing fund performance at the following levels:

  1. Contribution to SDGs. With a click, the system links all interventions to SDG outcome targets and indicators for a given Fund. Depending on the scope, a Fund usually contributes to at least a minimum of two to three SDG targets.

  2. Fund indicators. Results (outputs and/or outcomes) to which the United Nations contributes directly or that are attributable to Fund interventions. Each trust fund contributes to achieve six to eight fund specific indicators (or signature indicators for this fund) that directly link to its outcomes or outputs. These are the most relevant indicators that tell the story of a specific Fund.

  3. Operational indicators. Measures the operational and organizational performance of a Fund against indicators or previously defined KPIs. This includes fund level operational indicators (such as average transfer time, capitalization versus needs, timely submission of annual reports) and those at the project level (average project duration or closure time).

Through a module specifically developed for the grant management system, projects also track results towards Fund and operational performance indicators.
