Intervention design of Integrated Performance Management System (IPMS) for ICDS
- 15 September, 2014
Leakages from the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) have compromised the effectiveness of the programme. The study proposed a new design for an effective monitoring system for the ICDS programme in Bihar. With Integrated Performance Management System (IPMS), the ICDS will use technology-based solutions to create top-down and bottom-up channels of information which are actionable, frequent, verifiable, and accurate. This project prepares design on three of the IPMS’ four components: (1) frontline worker (Sevika) self-reporting; (2) supervisor monitoring; and (3) community grievance redressal and feedback. The design proposed in this paper aims to improve the ICDS service delivery, resulting in better beneficiary outcomes in Bihar.
