  • Design of a plan for pilot implementation in two simultaneous phases;
  • Support and technical training to SEDESOL during the implementation of the pilot system;
  • Based on the findings and recommendations of the pilot implementation, elaborate a strategy for expansion and consolidation of the system to promote the institutionalization of the results-based program management.

Main results:

  • A Results-Based Monitoring system (RBMS) was developed;
  • Four social programs were integrated in the RBMS system.
