The Value for Money (VFM) analysis of RAP is one-off review assessing what is driving costs and to ensure that the programme is providing the desired quality at the lowest price. The analysis aims to enable a variety of stakeholders, including DoLIDAR and DFID, to better understand the VfM of approaches to rural road development and thereby facilitate dialogue and learning to develop a VFM framework that can better capture the cost drivers across the 3 E’s of economy, efficiency and effectiveness.
Risk Event Registers maintained at districts and centre provide the status of identified risks and actions taken in mitigation.
Given the extraordinary year Nepal has had with the recent Earthquake and the fact that Rural Access Programme Phase 3 (RAP3) is a complex programme with multiple partners focused on one of the poorest and remote parts of the country, the programme has delivered significant results meeting most of the output targets. This is a marked improvement from the last Annual Review (AR).
This report covers the progress of RAP3 over the third trimester of FY 2072-73, 16th March to 15th July 2016. It provides data and information relating to progress of RAP3 over the last trimester. A Summary reviews the physical and financial progress of RAP at the end of the last trimester. This shows cumulative physical progress at 86.2%, time elapsed at 80.7% and financial progress at 80%, all nicely grouped. The summary also lists activities carried out last trimester and those planned for the next trimester.
The PMV Review Report is a MEL-led independent review of the existing Performance Management and Verification (PMV) system of RAP. The PMV system is RAP’s internal M&E system used to collect, aggregate and report data related to completed activities from the district to the central level. It is used to report results to DFID as well as drive performance management within RAP. The main objective of the report is to assess if RAP’s PMV is fit for purpose. The review examined existing RAP polices, systems and processes, identified strengths and areas for improvement and provided recommendations for addressing the more significant areas of improvement.
