MOPAN assessments provide a snapshot of an organisation's performance by taking into account the organisation's history, mission, context, trajectory and journey. Assessments cover four areas of organisational effectiveness: strategic management, operational management, relationship management and performance management, and results.
Organisations' structures, systems, approaches and processes are assessed and rated against MOPAN Indicator Framework to provide multidimensional insights on organisations' performance. Assessments draw on three types of evidence: documentary review, interviews with staff and a partner survey. The assessment process includes steps to ensure that the management of the multilateral organisations are consulted throughout the assessment. MOPAN assessments reflect fundamental differences in the nature, operating environment and history of each multilateral organisation.
