- BY Nicole Pelette
The Corporate Planning and Performance (CPP) Division establishes standards, products and services to ensure a transparent and accountable planning, budgeting and performance management function in WFP. Serving internal and external clients and stakeholders, the Division provides critical support to oversight and decision-making, driving the effective and efficient implementation of WFPs mandate. Under the direction of the Chief Financial Officer, CPP works across the organization to ensure effective and efficient processes across the performance cycle (planning, budgeting, implementation oversight, and reporting). The Division strives to deliver simple, clear and coherent planning to reporting services and products to its clients.
The Performance Analysis Cell (PAC) enhances CPP’s services and products, while enriching information available for decision making. It contributes to greater institutional coordination, streamlining and simplification of data-driven decision making. By leveraging corporate data across various functions, the PAC analysis will support performance management decision making and enhance WFPs understanding of effectiveness and efficacy and efficiency dynamics. Ultimately, PAC supports the CPP Division and the Resource Management (RM) Department by providing value-added data analysis to inform decision making across a range of Resource Management areas including performance management and resource prioritization, allocation, and oversight.
The PAC will contribute data-driven analysis as input to RM departmental services and products such as the Management Plan, Strategic Resource Allocation Committee (SRAC), the Annual Performance Plan (APR), and periodic functional/technical updates.
