Submission of 2019 Project Progress Assessment Reports (PPARs) (2019-12-03)  

The platform for submission of the mandatory annual Project Progress Assessment Reports (PPARs) is ready to receive reports relative to the year 2019.

Once PMOs have initiated the request for a report, CPs, DTMs and NLOs will receive a standard email asking them to provide their input. All users must have a Nucleus account (Username and Password) before having access to the system.

PPARs for 2019 can only be submitted through this platform – no other format will be registered.

The platform is accessible via the following link: https://tcreports.iaea.org/

The deadline for submission of e-PPARs is 31 January 2020. Guidelines for PPAR preparation and detailed user guides for NLOs/NLAs, CPs and DTMs are available in the PCMF Reference Desk.

PROJECT DOCUMENT TEMPLATES FOR THE 2022-2023 TC CYCLE (2020-02-21)

Please note that small changes were made to the templates for national, regional and interregional project documents. For download of the updated versions, please follow the relevant link under “Template Downloads” on this page.

Programme Monitoring and Reporting

TC projects are required to submit an annual Project Progress Assessment Report (PPAR) through the TC-Reports platform. This report is generated in a participatory manner with contributions from all members of the project team and collects information on the quality and progress made towards achieving project results. The end of the programming cycle corresponds to the review phase. This is conducted through a self-evaluation process reflected in the Project Achievement Report (PAR). The findings of this report are then utilized for continual improvement of the TC programme, including any follow-up adjustments and implementation of recommendations. The PAR is also a key element in TC knowledge management, enabling the learning loop between recorded experience and new project designs.

About PCMF

The TC programme cycle management framework (PCMF) is based on a flexible methodology, which emphasizes IAEA Member States' prioritization and ownership of the project, and relies on current best practices, user-friendly IT web-based systems and the principle of teamwork. The approach enables the Member State to take responsibility for the formulation and execution of its programme, while allowing stakeholders in the Secretariat to support the process and to collaborate in a transparent manner. It is linked to the Country Programme Frameworks through the identification of project concepts, which are then developed into projects, based upon assessed needs of Member States and joint appraisals in the field. More specifically, this improved approach:
  • Focuses more on need assessment and problem analysis supported by the IAEA.
  • Reduces the time and effort spent by the IAEA on project formulation and budget allocation of TC programme by streamlining, as well as making more efficient and transparent the selection, appraisal and approval processes, while enhancing the project quality.
  • Increases the participation and teamwork of all stakeholders from the outset.
