The goal is to generate reform progress analysis for policy making and public dialogue and thereby promote informed debate about reform priorities and policy decisions, improve accountability and help build trust between the government, private sector and general public.
Georgian Reform Progress Tracking System (GRPTS) informs the public on how new reform efforts of the Georgian government have progressed against their intended objectives and continue to improve development outcomes. This will allow beneficiaries to make informed decisions in political, economic and social settings and to advocate for reforms.
METHODOLOGY - Each reform will be evaluated, twice per year, by a group of stakeholders - 15 individuals not affiliated with GoG but directly affected by the reform in question. Assuming a total of up to 6 reforms to be tracked in any single year, up to 12 stakeholder meetings will be held per year. - The entire group of stakeholders will be convened at ISET in order to review the results of the government survey as well as objective data and information about reform outcomes, which will be collected and analyzed by the Project Team.
The Government Survey will measure progress in the implementation of selected reforms based on indicators and timetables agreed upon with the implementing agencies. - Objective outcome indicators to be collected and analyzed by the Project Team will measure the outcomes and impacts of each reform. - Each member of the group will provide an anonymous quantitative assessment of the reform. The total score for each reform will be calculated as a simple average of individual assessments. - Once a year, the stakeholder group meeting will be combined with a PPD, involving government, private sector, civil society and media.
The overall assessment of the reform process will be automatically provided through the ReforMeter – a summary score, derived as a weighted average of scores assigned to each reform. The ReforMeter score will be adjusted on a monthly basis, following monthly stakeholder meetings.
