  • Compiling Agency

    ADAPT allows for defining roles under the assessment tab for defining “institutional arrangements”. One of the roles that is available is compiling agency. The compiling agency is the institution responsible for computing the indicator. The compiling agency is distinguished from the agency that is responsible for monitoring the indicator and the agency that does the methodological review. An example of the roles might be: The Ministry of Health may monitor a health indicator that is produced by the National Statistics Office. In this case, the Ministry of Health is the monitoring agency and the NSO is the compiling agency.

  • Custodian organization

    International organization responsible for compiling data on the SDG indicator. It is the organization to which the national monitoring agency must report to.

  • Capacity gap

    One of the primary outputs of ADAPT is a Gap Analysis. One of the key components in the Gap Analysis is what is called the Capacity Gap. The information for producing the Capacity Gap comes from the assessment process and comes from the question: "Is technical assistance required?", ADAPT then used the Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM) to assess where in the production process the compiling agency requires technical assistance, The Capacity Gap is evaluated using Phase 5 of the GSBPM or the Production Phase (see GSBPM).


    The Country Report on Support to Statistics is an initiative led by the country to gather all data relating to the funding of the National Statistical System (NSS), whether deriving from domestic resources or external aid. The ultimate objective is to improve efficiency of the NSS through better information sharing and co-ordination.

  • CT-GAP

    ADAPT allows for mapping activities under the NSDS tab to the Cape Town Global Action Plan for Sustainable Development Data (CT-GAP). This activity-to-activity mapping can be done with all statistical development frameworks and allows for reporting aggregate investments in statistics at the national level to the global action plan.

    The CT GAP was launched at the first United Nations World Data Forum. The Plan calls for a commitment by governments, policy leaders and the international community to undertake key actions under six strategic areas, including: coordination and leadership; innovation and modernization of national statistical systems; dissemination of data on sustainable development; building partnerships; and mobilizing resources.

    The Action Plan has been under development for the past year by statistical experts in a high-level group with inputs from stakeholders from the different data communities, and will be formally approved by the UN Statistical Commission at its 48th session in March.
