Performance Indicator Targets

Published
Updated
Description

This document provides supplemental guidance to ADS 201.3.5.6 Indicator Targets, and offers guidelines and good practices for USAID and its partners to set targets for performance indicators, use targets to compare to actual data, and adjust targets when necessary.

Targets help USAID staff, IPs, and other partners determine whether progress is being made according to expectations originally envisioned. When actual data deviate significantly from a set target, it should trigger adjustments in expectations for results or adaptations in program implementation or design.
