The paper presents an overview of the Performance Assessment Tool (PAT) developed and utilised in monitoring the performance of WATSAN Committees in beneficiary communities under the KfW financed Rural Water and Sanitation Programme (RWSP) Phase IV and African Development Bank (AfDB) financed Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Initiative (RWSSI) both being implemented in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. Even though the use of the tool presents challenges with regards to resource required to undertake the exercise, the PAT has enormous potential and could be easily adopted and replicated on other projects and for routine monitoring of WATSAN Committees. It also allows for a comparative assessment of WATSAN Committees and could serve as a catalyst for enhancing their performance.
