A Performance Management Plan (PMP) is a Mission-wide tool for planning and managing the process of (1) monitoring strategic progress, project performance, programmatic assumptions, and operational context; (2) evaluating performance and impact; and (3) learning and adapting from evidence. 

Each Mission must prepare a Mission-wide PMP within six months of CDCS approval. Missions that do not have a CDCS are required to have a PMP covering all projects they fund. 

This How-To Note provides an overview of the PMP and outlines practical steps for developing and maintaining a PMP.

The primary audience includes Program Officers, M&E Specialists, learning advisors, technical officers, and Project Managers.
