Another important aspect you need to monitor is whether the activities and outputs of the national IEA process take place on time and have the desired quality. Timely delivery implies efficient and effective use of resources (human, financial, informational, etc.) and opportunities. Extended delivery time creates demand on resources, and can jeopardize opportunities. This sounds trivial, but in order to measure timely completion you need a carefully-designed timeline of activities and outputs, with clear milestones.
Key activities and outputs typical of a national IEA process are described in Module 2. Based on the information provided in Module 2, Figure 6 presents a potential format for monitoring the timely completion of activities and their outputs.
