Results-Oriented Public Sector Management (ROPM): The Framework The results-oriented public sector management framework being used by SDE can be schematized in Diagram 1. Evaluation, capacity-building, institutional feedback and incentives, improved policy formulation and service delivery, are all part of a virtuous circle in which many society actorspublic and private, national, regional and localbecome agents of change. By promoting a change in culture (results orientation), innovative and responsible leadership and community participation, SYNERGY can generate effective demand for capacity-building thereby creating the missing link to institutional development and setting the basis for a performance-oriented public sector in Colombia.

Indeed, new formal institutional units are not desirable, and will likely confuse and be disliked by the existing management structure. SYNERGY should be kept as simple as possible and avoid blurring accountability. DNP should be careful that the language used for these new units does not suggest that they have any managerial responsibility. The units might be given a revised name, such as "program advisory units" or "program coordination units" to avoid possible misunderstandings, and tensions, on their role.

Data are available on the condition of national roads and on numbers of accidents, on amount of reported crime, and DANE annually conducts large surveys of households obtaining data on employment and earnings. DANE also has conduced quality-of-life surveys of the Colombian households but on an irregular basis (last in 1992). DANE is currently completing an inventory of data being collected in many sectors which should prove useful for many entities. Some of these data are likely to have a timeliness problem.
