The Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA), with funding from the 11th EDF Programme of Support for Health Security Strengthening for Prevention and Control of Outbreaks of Communicable Diseases in the Caribbean, is seeking to engage a consultant to support the development of the Agency’s Results Oriented Strategic Plan (2022-2025); design and implement a web-based results based management system to support the monitoring of, and reporting on the implementation of the Strategic Plan and the portfolio of International Development Partner (IDP)-funded projects that support the implementation of the Strategic Plan; deliver training to targeted staff in the areas of RBM and/or Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E).
Over the past few decades, there has been constant pressure on governments and implementing agencies around the world for greater transparency and accountability to taxpayers for the use of public resources. Public concern in the face of escalating national account deficits and the need for more transparent and accountable governance has been an important factor in the evolution of modern management. Historically, governments and implementing organizations focussed their attention on inputs and activities at the expense of actual results. This limited the effectiveness of what their development actions were aiming to achieve. Results-based management was introduced to address this problem.
Results-based management (RBM) also known as performance management, has been adopted by many governments and donor agencies to provide a coherent framework for learning and accountability in a decentralized environment. RBM supports the on-going transition from an annual budget exercise to a strategy-driven corporate planning cycle, and from an internal management focus on inputs and activities to an outward-looking orientation centered on achieving results through partnerships. RBM emphasizes development effectiveness and accountability and supports a culture focusing on results on the ground, greater transparency and participation, moving away from inputs and processes to outputs, outcomes and ultimate impact.
