The authors of the case studies were asked to provide both a static mapping of the PRS monitoring system—the formal allocation of responsibilities among various actors—and a dynamic mapping of how monitoring and information flows actually function. The case studies therefore range beyond the terrain of monitoring in a strict sense to include the challenges of organizing information flows within and outside government and the way that monitoring information is used within national policy cycles.
However, the country studies upon which this analysis is grounded indicate that the achievements against these rather ambitious goals have been limited. In most countries, both the supply side (organizing the monitoring and reporting of indicators across fragmented administrations) and the demand side (ensuring that monitoring information is actually used in national decision-making processes) are posing major practical challenges. This chapter therefore begin by reviewing the goals and functions of a PRS monitoring system and comparing these against the experiences described in the country studies in order to provide a realistic perspective on the challenges ahead.
The recent effort by many countries to establish national statistical development strategies driven by the needs of the national PRS goes some way in this direction. Second, national statistics institutes are often allocated a standardsetting, technical-assistance, and capacity-building role in relation to administrative information systems. In most cases, they have been slow in taking up this role. The problem may be partly a result of the existing funding modalities for statistical systems. National statistics institutes tend to prioritize large survey and statistical operations, for which donor funding is readily available, leaving little time for other functions.
