Mutual Accountability & Donor Performance Assessment

The Case of Mozambique

Pedro Couto, Vice-Minister of Finance

Hanoi, February 2007


Introduction
Introduction

  • Mozambique has been at the forefront of developments in the area of mutual accountablity and donor performance assessment.

  • A system of mutual accountability based on clear targets for government and for Programmatic Aid Partners (PAPs) has been jointly developed.

  • This system is embodied in the “Performance Assessment Frameworks” (PAF and PAPs PAF)

  • PAF (government) performance is assessed during an annual review process involving government, donor and civil society representatives.

  • PAPs PAF (donor) performance is assessed by an independent consultant.


Donor performance assessment
Donor Performance Assessment

  • There are now 18 “Programmatic Aid Partners” (PAPs), who will disburse around $600M in GBS and sector programme aid in 2007.

  • An MoU between PAPs and the government was signed in 2004.

  • Evaluation of donor progress on Harmonization and Alignment and Aid Effectiveness issues is a key element of this MoU.


Mutual accountability and the annual review process
Mutual Accountability and the Annual Review Process

  • There are two annual review processes related to general budget support. These are important moments in the mutual accountability system:

  • At the Joint Review in March/April government and donor performance is evaluated relative to agreed targets for the previous year.

    • 4 weeks after the Joint Review, donors make commitments for GBS for the following year.

  • At the Mid Year Review in September targets for the following year are jointly agreed, for both government and donors.

  • Targets for government cover all priority poverty-reduction areas as well as public financial management issues, and are coordinated around the PARPA II.

  • Targets for donors are based on MoU commitments on alignment, aid effectiveness and coordination.


Paps paf methodology
PAPs PAF – Methodology

  • The PAPs PAF is a matrix of indicators based on MoU and aid effectiveness commitments.

  • Aid effectiveness targets are increasingly aligned with Paris Declaration commitments, although adapted to the Mozambican context where appropriate.

  • From 2006, targets were disaggregated by donor as well as being measured for the group as a whole. This is not to identify “good” or “bad” donors, but to enable donor peer review and to counteract the impact of a few large donors on the average score.

  • Indicators are given a weighting for calculation of the final score, based on government priority.


Paps paf structure
PAPs PAF – Structure

  • Average and individual targets are jointly agreed for the following categories:

    • Portfolio Composition (25% of total points)

      • Budget Support

      • Programme Aid

    • Predictability (35% of total points)

      • Budget Support Commitments

      • Budget Support Disbursements

      • All Aid on Budget

    • Harmonization and Alignment (35% of total points)

      • Reduction of Conditionality

      • Use of Government Systems

    • Capacity Building (5% of total points)

      • PIU´s

      • Technical Assistance

Donor performance assessment methodology
Donor Performance Assessment – Methodology

  • Evaluation of donor performace relative to PAPs PAF targets forms one of the inputs for the joint review.

  • The evaluation is carried out by an independent consultant, managed by a joint government-donor team and includes:

    • A survey of donor practices

    • Interviews with donor and government officials

    • Analysis of commitments and actual disbursements

    • A score allocated to each donor for each indicator in the PAPs PAF.

  • The evaluation report is distributed widely across government and civil society and is publicly available.


Donor evaluation lessons learnt
Donor Evaluation – Lessons Learnt

  • Lessons Learnt from the “PAPs PAF” process:

    • Need for clear government position, in order to define targets, and their weight in overall score.

    • The importance of individual donor evaluation as well as treating the group as a whole – a few large donors can significantly affect the average score.

    • The need for clear definitions (where possible based on those defined for OECD-DAC questionnaire).

    • Clear agreement on scoring systems (e.g. A simple binary “met”/”not met” or a scale of achievement?)

    • Need to adapt international targets to the local context.

    • Need to be sufficiently flexible to allow for different donor systems, while maintaining the aim of harmonization.

    • The need for good government records to cross check data.


Conclusion
Conclusion

  • Donor Performance Assessment is:

    • A tool for government in setting the aid effectiveness agenda.

    • Guidance for donors in development of country strategies and discussions with HQ.

    • An input to donor peer review.

    • An ongoing process – methodology is improving, lessons learnt.

    • A time consuming process – requires significant amount of high level government involvement to have significant impact.
