During this open forum HFUs from all funds are given the opportunity to ask questions related to any GMS topic.
E.g. This partner was first assessed as High and the score was kept as 0. Now the IP has implemented a project and receives a first PI index score of 64.72 which is Medium (based on 60 percent weightage of the CA and 40 percent of the PI1). If you put zero we consider it as 100 percent so we will take a scoring of 50 percent. On the left is the current Partner Risk Level, on the right is the PI Adjusted Risk that is being calculated now.
HFU keeps full freedom to say if they want to agree to this change or not and update. For both agree and disagree you need to leave a comment and update. No further pop-up will be shown unless if there is a new mismatch.
Make sure to discuss with your team before making changes, because this decision will determine the operational modalities for that partner. Partner Risk Level will be used for all instances for this partner.
Their might be a lot of scenarios that come into the picture for other aspects of it like for example how the CA is done (e.g. HACT modality) or how you revisit and recalculate a version of the CA. Regarding Partner Risk some countries already had some scores associated with them before we launched this module. However, we were only told that there was offline data that needed to be imported when we finished developing this new module.
In the longer run we will create a dashboard were you can do a complete change in bulk for projects that have closed or that are under closure and play around with the values so you can get to a risk level. On that dashboard you will be able to re-change the scores to fit into the existing data you have in the offline data. It will be coming by the end of the year.
It is important to reflect scores in the PPI because this is going to be used for a longer term: the PPI score is going to affect and impact overall partner performance in the longer run. The score has to be properly updated as it will affect operational modalities. When you apply operational modalities you do so on the basis of the running risk, and this cannot be changed again. There are longer consequences, so make sure to finish (manually) importing the data.
