Understanding the Status Report

Status Report

This report displays the details of local business development activities and specifically the Tendering Process, which correspond to the period and local benefit level selected in the report filters.

  • Capacity building indicators section: the number of capacity building events held, number of business achieving a pass in capacity building events, and the total cost of capacity building events held
  • Opportunities indicators section: the number of business opportunities offered, number of businesses who received contracts, and the total value of contracts received.
  • Feedback section: the level of satisfaction indicated by stakeholders throughout the local business development activities, as a percentage
  • Spending progress section: this graph shows the cumulative value spent each month on capacity building events and businesses contracts
  • Business performance progress section: this graph shows the progress of the distribution of the performance levels assessed during the audits. It is used to determine if the business development program is used and efficient along time. The table shows the number of businesses according to their performance changes during the report period. In general businesses that have been registered in the program are encouraged to raise their performance level along time.
  • Contracts distribution: 
    • The 1st graph shows the performance levels assessed during the audits, the total value of the contracts awarded to local businesses split by local benefits scope. This indicates if the distribution is equal in terms of area of influence and maturity of businesses.
    • The 2nd graph shows the quintile distribution of contracts value to successful businesses. That is, each section of the graph represents the same number of successful businesses (20%) and shows how much contract value each of the five groups (quintile) received. Use this graph to determine if only a few businesses have received the majority of income from contracts or alternatively if there is a fair distribution. Eg, the graph may indicate that top 20% of businesses received 95% of the income generated from all contracts included in the local business development program; such an unequal distribution of money may be the cause of grievances in certain communities.
