Description

This document provides supplemental guidance to ADS 201.3.5.7.E Indicator Baseline, and offers guidance for planning and collecting performance indicator baseline data for monitoring and evaluation of USAID strategies, projects, and activities.

Baselines are used for comparison with monitoring or evaluation data collected during or after the implementation of a strategy, project, or activity. They are vital to setting realistic performance indicator targets and for measuring change over time.
