Funded by the Australian Government, PICPA is a specialist centre which responds to the identified needs and plans of Pacific Island Countries (PICs)

The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Pacific Islands Centre for Public Administration (PICPA) wants to better gauge the impact and results of its project activities and intervention.

In doing so, PICPA has embarked on the preparation of a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation framework and template through the engagement of technical expertise.

Consultants engaged for this project will trial test the prepared framework and template using data from PICPA projects implemented in Samoa and Vanuatu.

Director PICPA, Mr Parmesh Chand said in line with international best practices, the Centre has moved away from output-based reporting to outcomes, impact and results-based analysis and reporting. 

He stated that this is also in line with reporting requirements of donors and other stakeholders.

Mr Chand said like other agencies using donor funds, the Centre has to be fully accountable to the resources it is provided, ensuring there is desired impact and results and better value for money for each dollar spent.

Funded by the Australian Government, PICPA is a specialist centre which responds to the identified needs and plans of Pacific Island Countries (PICs), for strengthened public administration to enable improved service delivery and faster economic growth.
