The Organizational Capacity Assessment (OCA) is a structured tool for a facilitated self-assessment of an organization's capacity followed by action planning for capacity improvements. The self-assessment approach increases ownership of the action plan. The OCA format helps the organization reflect on its processes and functions, and score itself against benchmarks. Based on the discussions and the scoring, the organization shapes and sets priorities for actions it can take to strengthen its capacity.
