Over many years in the past, together with inputs, outputs, results, impact and sustainability, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) had always been caught in some values. This process requires a complete know-how of how NGOs monitor and measure performance, and what performance components result in good overall economic results, performance, and quality. In this paper we provide an overview of the distinctive concepts and mechanisms for assessing and monitoring overall performance in the NGOs sector.
