This paper attempts to provide a framework in identifying the indicators for the impact evaluation of development programs.  The suggested framework is then applied to a particular development program undertaken by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) called Gain Export Program (GAINEX).

 The ultimate purpose of the framework developed in this paper is to provide a system of evaluating each project, anticipate data requirements needed for a pipeline project most likely to be approved by an implementing agency, and facilitate project monitoring vis-à-vis its stated objectives.
