Accountability is one of the 12 Cornerstones that guide our work. The people we serve are encouraged to conduct self-reviews to reinforce performance. They conduct these reviews every four months to review progress, analyze results in key areas and make new plans. We believe that these personal reviews empower the project participants to produce sustainable change in their families, groups and societies. We also conduct mid-term and end-of-project evaluations for larger projects.
Our country program offices conduct annual self-reviews based on their strategic plans and receive periodic reviews from peers or external sources. In cooperation with our finance and human resource teams, international programs give regular oversight to field and operations to assure compliance with all policies and assure good management.
All new projects are required to conduct results-based monitoring. From collection of baseline data to monitoring results and impact data, accountability is key to our success. Our country offices frequently perform project visits and their hands-on approach to training and follow-up helps ensure further accountability.
