Scaling Up Family Planning Programme (SUFP II) – Value for Money analysis

Zambia

The Project

The Scaling Up Family Planning Programme in Zambia has been running since 2012. It was successful in giving 300,000 women and girls access to family planning (50% more than the original target), with poor rural women making up more than 70% of beneficiaries. A costed extension to the end of 2018 was agreed in 2016. The overall objective of the programme is to improve reproductive health through providing women with access to family planning. The focus of the costed extension (SUFP II) is to enable the adaptation of the SUFP model and transition to full government management of the programme at all levels, based on lessons learned to date. This means the project has shifted from a service delivery programme, whereby SUFP directly conducted activities to increase access to FP services, to a capacity development and systems strengthening programme.

LAMP was contracted and worked closely with the programme team to:

– Apply SUFP VFM framework to a reporting system, which aligns with existing processes as far as possible, for example, annual work plans, and operational performance indicators from M&E logframe and financial inputs from financial management system.
– Generate, verify and analyse year-11 VFM indicators and results.
– Review costs per output indicators, taking into consideration long term discounted results.
– Generate a VFM report which will cover the first year of SUFP II.
– Compare results to baseline surveys taken from SUFP phase 1, year 4 where applicable and appropriate.

Beyond that, LAMP worked closely with the programme team to:

– Prepare a VfM report for the first year of the 2nd phase of the programme
– Revise and update the VfM framework reflecting the evolution of the programme from service delivery to systems strengthening
– Make recommendations for further VfM improvements to the programme

Highlights

  • The team was able to make the most out of existing programme data on training to generate new insights to improve VFM
