Depending on the nature, scope, and length of the project or programme, PPAF typically
employs one or a combination of tools to gauge the result of its interventions.
The evaluation studies may be, and have been, undertaken by PPAF itself, a third
party, or any research institution interested in the impact of a particular project.
PPAF’s newly developed Results Framework is formulated to track outcomes and impact
in a two dimensional framework:
(i) Overall Objectives (and associated indicators) align PPAF operational activities,
to the extent relevant, with Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and core focus
on institutions of the poor
(ii) Intermediate Outcomes (and associated indicators) break out overall indicators
in terms of operational components. Both dimensions represent long term objectives
and vision of the institution.
Time bound project specific indicators are subsumed in the overall PPAF strategic
objectives and framework. All the envisioned outcomes and impact are limited to
PPAF interventions, components, communities, households, districts, UCs and locations.
