The Pact Organizational Performance Index (OPI) supports measurement of change in organizational performance, and clarifies the link between capacity development inputs and community level impact. It is a revolutionary yet user-friendly approach that looks beyond the development of organizational systems or skills, and analyzes the actual value added through capacity development efforts.The RESPOND Project used the Organizational Performance Index with fifteen organizations, to reconstruct their baseline in 2013 and then assess their current performance in 2014.

RESPOND Capacity Development team used the tool to review the data together with partners, verifying results in each sub-domain against evidence provided by partners.
