The CDM secretariat organized five-day training workshop in Result-Based Management and Reporting, development of performance indicators as well as review the existing performance measurement framework (PMF). To ensure high technical quality of work and reporting by beneficiary organizations, there was the need to organize a five day training workshop for four additional beneficiary organizations under the CDM. Special emphasis was placed on results-based reporting as this is a requirement under the CDM structure. The workshop was held over the period Monday November 16 to Friday November 20, 2015.
The Workshop, which was held in the Conference Room of Aknac Hotel, East Legon, Accra was attended by fourteen (14) participants drawn from four (4) beneficiary Organizations and the CDM secretariat. The participants came from Public Services Commission (PSC), Office of the Head of the Civil Service (OHCS), Public Procurement Authority (PPA) and the Procurement Department of the Office of the Head of the Civil Service as well as the CDM Secretariat.
The highly interactive, hands-on training was facilitated by Mr. Philip Osei Antoh from the Management Development and Productivity Institute (MDPI) in Accra, Ghana.
Opening the workshop, the CDM National Coordinator, Mr. Louis K. Amo, noted that the CDM Implementation Steering Committee, at its 14th meeting, tasked the CDM Secretariat to organize the workshop for beneficiary organizations that have not been trained in Results-Based management and reporting.
The purpose of the workshop was to train implementation team members of three new beneficiary organizations (PRAAD, PPA and PD), two new members of the CDM secretariat as well as implementation team members of PSC who are new to the CDM. The training aims at ensuring high technical quality of work by beneficiary organization and provides them with skills to report on the implementation of the CDM activities using the RBM format.
The National CDM Coordinator enjoined the participants to take the training seriously and bring the knowledge that would be acquired to bear in the performance of their work. The course content was tailored to reflect common Monitoring and Evaluation rules, policies, practices and procedures.
