Government Performance Index handbook

Capacity development

This handbook provides practical guidance on how to administer the Government Performance Index (GPI). By the end of their review, readers should have the information and skills to understand the GPI and its background, describe the GPI’s domains and sub-domains, and administer the tool. The GPI helps Pact or other users and their government partners regularly review, document, and analyze government performance against a set of standard measurements. The results can then be used to adapt program approaches to improve performance at an individual agency, project, or program-wide level.
