The results framework for the FY12-FY16 funding cycle is presented in two sections.
An overall results framework that specifies the high-level outcomes that PFTAC’s technical assistance contributes towards.
Immediate outcomes for each sector. Frameworks are presented to for each sector that detail the immediate outcomes that PFTAC’s technical assistance and training will seek to help countries achieve. These immediate outcomes cannot be achieved solely through PFTAC’s activities—they require country commitment and action—but are more closely related to PFTAC’s outputs than the high level outcomes. The frameworks also detail:
The results frameworks for each sector will guide the allocation of PFTAC resources. They will also underpin reporting and accountability. The frameworks will be used for reporting to the steering committee throughout the project cycle, including as an organizing framework for the workplan. Steering committee members will be able to track how PFTAC countries are progressing towards the targeted results and how PFTAC allocates its activities and resources to specific results or groups of results.
Frameworks will be updated as required. The results framework will be refined over the coming months, in particular through firming up the baseline. Economic circumstances and changing reform priorities in PFTAC countries could also mean that new results are inserted during the funding cycle or that less emphasis is placed on a specific result than envisaged in this program document. If substantive changes to the results frameworks are proposed, steering committee members will be consulted.
