Report
Disbursement Linked Indicator Approach
Origin
Traditional Funding
Characteristics
• Funding based on input factors
• Expenditures
Issues
• No talk of performance of
institutions:
• Quality of education
• Learning/employability
• Scale-up of education
• Research publication and
outreach to companies
• Institutions pursue their goals
Performance-Based Funding
Aim:
• To achieve better results
• Respects institutional autonomy and
leadership, and still align
institutional goals with development
goals
• Improve Institutional capacity to
plan, decide and implement
• Increase accountability
• Objective, predictable, and
transparent funding allocation
• Additionally for the WB: support a
government program, pilot an
approach to results-based financing,
and use of government procurement
rules to strengthen capacity

Govt, WB and institutions design a
government program: performance and
funding agreement to establish Africa Centers
of Excellence:
1. Results: measurable and within control of
institution
2. Disbursements


Linked to results and
Reimbursement of selected costs
3. Costs:
 Investment line - in budget
 regular salaries and other recurrent costs– in budget

• Govt only disburses when WB disburses => no financial risk to
