Recommendations
1 The Board must meet quarterly to ensure adequate project management and performance monitoring using the Project Results Framework as a guide.
2 The Project Management Unit must be restructured with strengthened leadership arrangements.
3 Training of the ANAC leadership and administration teams in financial management and project management must be focused and regular.
4 A facilitated workshop of key IPs and stakeholders must be convened to develop a shared understanding of the project objective and intended outputs, using the Logframe and Tracking Tools as integrative project management tools.
5 The extension of project by one year to compensate for the slow start is possible, but should be conditional on the restructuring of the PMU to ensure effective completion of component 1 activities and the integration of the three components into a whole greater than the sum of the parts.
6 The lack of a recognizable identity and the documentation and communication of the project?s achievements must be addressed.
