Benchmarking: Getting Started on Munibench

14 January 2013

The aim of the Munibench system is to: 

  • Measure performance - through facilities for data input, comparison of Performance Indicators (PIs) via appropriate dashboards, check participation progress, etc); and
  • Improve performance - through access to material associated with shared learning, peer networks, case studies, guidelines, methodologies/techniques, training, etc). 

The following system features have initially been developed: 

  • Setup default variables, contextual information and performance indicators
  • Customise variables and performance indicators
  • Capture data
  • Draw charts of variables and performance indicators (individual and comparative performance)
  • Dashboard that allows display of default and customised performance indicators
  • Upload of useful resources 

Data can be entered and updated on the system ( at any time. The 2011/12 Data Gathering Round commenced in mid-August. The intention is to hold an annual ‘Data Gathering Round’, at the end of which data will be extracted and a national report compiled. More information will follow on this.





Some first steps for getting started:

Step 1: Register

Step 2: Set up Client Information. This is basic information about the WSA, including municipality name, code, province, type of activity etc.

 Step 3: Enable PIs. The system contains a large number of PIs across six modules. This step is to review the list of available PIs and select which PIs your municipality wishes to track.

Step 4: Enter data.

Step 5: View performance.
