The Performance Reference Model (PRM) is one of the Reference Models of the IndEA Framework (#IndEA) (#IndEAPRM) and the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (#FEAF) (#FEAFPRM).

The key objective of PRM is to provide a uniform and consistent mechanism to measure the efficiency and effectiveness of the different sectors or domains in achieving the overall goals of the Government (or any other social actor) .

The principal instrument of the PRM is a set of KPIs designed rationally to measure the outputs and outcomes of the various programs, schemes, projects and activities (Development initiative). A prioritized and phased approach for implementation of PRM is recommended so as to avoid the situation of creating a plethora of KPIs, which hide the actual performance and outcomes.
