9 Results-Based Budgeting (RBB) ObjectiveComponentExpected AccomplishmentsIndicators of achievementOutputs:External FactorsObjective: an overall desired achievement involving a process of change and aimed at meeting certain needs of identified end-users, within a given period of time.Expected Accomplishment: a desired outcome involving benefits to end-users, expressed as a quantitative or qualitative standard, value or rate.Indicators of Achievement: used to measure to what extent the objectives and/or expected accomplishments have been achieved. Indicators correspond either directly or indirectly to the objective or the expected accomplishments and are used to measure performance.Outputs: final products or services delivered by a programme or subprogram to end-users, such as reports, publications, training, servicing of meetings, or advisory, editorial, translation of security services, which an activity is expected to produce in order to achieve its objectives.External factors: events and/or conditions that are beyond the control of those responsible for an activity but that have an influence on the success or failure of the activity. They may be anticipated in the form of assumptions or they may be unanticipated.Component Approach:Provide focus on how mission contributes to the objective by grouping expected accomplishments and related outputsNot necessarily components in terms of organisational chart e.g. civil affairsOutputs are reflected under those components that contain the accomplishments to which they contributeE.g. Civilian Police output for elections “Ballot boxes security”could be reflected under Substantive Civilian component accomplishment “Achievement of free and fair elections”Support component of particular interest to ACABQ
