The Performance Management Support Contract (PERFORM) will serve as a centralized management support mechanism supporting USAID/Pakistan’s mission to increase stability, democracy, and prosperity for the men and women of Pakistan through the implementation of the Mission Strategic Framework (MSF). PERFORM will provide  data and information to help project managers improve project results through better implementation and design, as well as services that support the Mission’s learning and adaptive process, enabling it to better target its programming and achieve its goals and objectives.

The evaluation will focus on assessing EPP’s effectiveness in achieving its planned results, along with identifying the factors that have contributed to success or lack thereof. The evaluation will take place during the last year of program implementation  and will serve a dual purpose of learning to what extent the project’s planned results have been achieved and how sustainable they are and to inform the design of USAID’s future support for energy sector reforms in Pakistan.
