Abstract: The majority of public works contracts undertaken in developing countries have a total cost of less than US $15 000. They include the provision of enhanced water and sanitation, access ways and pavements, small community buildings and solid-waste related construction. These are termed 'micro-projects' and there is a general lack of information for such projects. This paper describes the development and testing of 67 performance indicators for use on micro-projects. They include not only general performance indicators but also indicators for inter-organizational and socio-economic issues. These indicators are based on data from over 800 micro-projects undertaken in developing countries. For each indicator, a statement of why the indicator was selected, the key sources of information and how to determine the indicator is provided. Examples of the use of the indicators are also presented.
