Measuring Government Business Incentives Schemes (GBIS): Towards a Set of Minimum Standards and Measures

The Policy Framework for the Government Wide Monitoring and Evaluation (GWM&E) System, published in 2007 by the Presidency, emphasised the importance of monitoring and evaluation in realising a more effective government. The appropriateness, availability and quality of programme performance information through a robust management system is an iterative process that requires efficient and practical monitoring, evaluation, research and learning system. Multi-sectoral interventions such as the GBIS require a centralised monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework that can consolidate and aggregate data from multiple incentives into a coherent impact assessment.
