1. How the performance of institutions/implementation entities participating in the Project shall be monitored and evaluated?

All participating institutions/implementation entities participating in the Project viz SPFUs, NPIU will be linked through a Management Information System (MIS) being developed for the project for the purpose of monitoring.

The evaluation will cover:

a) Assessment of institutional performance in Project implementation through performance reviews and audits for accountability and funding decisions,

b) Assessment of performance in achieving against set targets,

c) Assessment of the implementation strategy through implementation surveys,

d) Satisfaction surveys of faculty and students for up-gradation in delivering quality education, and

e) Overall assessment of the objectives achieved under the project through impact assessment survey.





2. What shall be the treatment for non-performing institutions/States?

Bi-annual reviews and a mid-term review will assess the achievements of Project Institutions and States against the set targets and also identify corrective measures for maximizing gains from the Project. The financial allocation of the non-performing institutions/States for the remaining period of the Project will be adjusted based on their performance and may also weeded out in extreme cases.





3. What are the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)?

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are important intermediate/long-term outcome indicators that will help in monitoring the progress of project institutions. The data for the following KPIs will be collected on continuous basis through MIS.



S.No Key Performance Indicators TARGET:

8  IRG as % of total recurring expenditure  






4. What is Management Information System (MIS) and what is its usage?

Management Information System (MIS) is a tool to achieve the M&E objectives of the project. MIS will track implementation of key project inputs, outcomes and impacts corresponding to project activities through performance indicators developed under the project. It will be a web-based application with Graphic User Interface (GUI) based user interface, which will allow timely and transparent storage of data, processing and retrieval of data, flow of information, searching and sorting of specific information uniformly, accurately and quickly and generation of reports.

MIS will link all the project institutions, the State governments (SPFU's) at State level, and the NPIU at National level. All the project institutions will access MIS through the web with conditional access to the nominated persons only with defined level of access and security measures.

It will also have a limited interface for access by the general public and websites of the state and central directorates responsible for technical education of project and non-project institutions and other relevant websites like AICTE, NBA, NAAC, MHRD will be linked to the MIS website.
