The purpose of the OCA tool is to assist institutions in assessing the critical elements for effective organizational management, and identifying those areas that need strengthening or further development. As a facilitated self-assessment tool it is designed to enable institutions to identify gaps, articulate capacity needs, and develop an improvement plan. It provides the leadership and staff with objective criteria against which to measure their own performance.
This version of the OCA tool assesses organizational capacity in three main domains, each with several sub-domains: (1) Governance, Leadership, and Strategic Management; (2) Administration, Human Resources, and Financial Management; and (3) Strategic Information.
