RIM has developed the Graduation Model Assessment Toolkit as a step-by-step guide for the contracting party and the assessors implementing the Model’s assessment process within an MFI. This toolkit is divided into three distinct sections:
The Administrative Guide is aimed at Graduation Model assessors as well as contracting parties and provides guidance on the administration of the Model’s assessments, including subsections related to gaining buy-in, negotiating and contracting, and post-assessment administration.
The Technical Guide, is aimed at Graduation Model assessors and provides guidance on the technical implementation of the Model’s assessment methodology. This includes off-site preparation, on-site assessment, analyzing results, the Institutional Graduation Path Workshop, and concluding the assessor’s visit. At each of these steps, the Toolkit is accompanied by practical tips and tools that should inform the assessor’s implementation of the Graduation Model Assessment.
Purpose: To hand off all of the RMGM Assessment outputs, through verbal communication and documentation, to all the stakeholders; ensure that the contracting party and the MFI have what they need to continue to improve risk management through implementation of the Institutional Graduation Path
Purpose: To ensure that RMGM Assessment activities are concluded appropriately, evaluation of the RMGM process is completed, and all parties are clear on their ongoing responsibility for monitoring and implementing the Institutional Graduation Path over time.
