2: MEL Compliance Self Check is performed bi-annually

The MEL CSC is a self-assessment and reporting tool measuring the level of compliance of a DRC/DDG office with the DRC MEL minimum operational procedures.

The purpose of the CSC is to allow managers in HQ and the field to identify critical non-compliance areas and focus their attention in directions where it is most needed.

Based on simple yes, no, partially, N/A etc. answers for each question a compliance %-score is calculated. The aim for offices should always be to get a score as close to 100% as possible. Thematic areas with low scores will have to be addressed from a risk perspective within a certain time frame.

The MEL team in OPSU will produce a report for all Country Operations. The report will show the overall compliance rate per Operation. The Senior Management Group in HQ will receive the report.

The MEL CSC will be a mandatory exercise from the field every six months, first time in July 2015. The reports will be published within 2 weeks after all CSCs have been received.

The rating coming out of the CSC will be expected to be discussed during the first upcoming revision of the Results Contract.
