DFID Guidance On Using The Revised Logical Framework. 02/2009
How To Note. A DFID Practice Paper. February 2009
The UK Department for International Development (DFID) works with a wide range of partners from long-term arrangements with partner governments and multilateral organisations to short-term humanitarian aid projects funded through NGOs. DFID's interest is in ensuring that each is devised and delivered in the most efficient and effective way and links to identified objectives set out in a Divisional Performance Framework or Country / Regional Plan.
This guidance has been written for DFID project workers and DFID partners, and focuses on helping to make the best use of the logical framework (logframe) in designing and managing projects. It was partly informed by reports that highlighted weaknesses in existing logframes. The new designed format aims to address those weaknesses by encouraging the identification of objectives at the right level, more robust specification of indicators, increased coverage of baseline and target information and better quantification of results.
The guidance applies to any one involved in the design approval or active use of the logframe and all DFID projects of a value of one million pounds and above. Additional guidance in annexes has been provided to help the reader form a broader picture of what is involved in putting together a logframe.
