Entering a period of three years passing courses PUAP considered important to measure how far PUAP goal can be achieved and can be implemented. Furthermore, how these activities have been carried out beneficial for all stakeholders or adopted by the community. On the other hand, if these activities have been completed and executed by a team coordinated PUAP from central to local levels, how to keep it sustainable, how the strategy (exit strategy) and who will manage it in the future. Many of these questions need to be answered and is given as input for policy makers for future agricultural development.

All of the questions above can be answered through an Outcome Based Monitoring and Evaluation (OBMNE).OMBNE is an approach to monitoring and evaluation, which will see further than only to the extent of output but also the outcome.

In 29 - July 31, 2010 and in the Hotel Garden Permana, Bandung, Midyear  Workshop of PUAP which theme "Strategy Formulation and Parameters OBMNE PUAP Sustainability” was held. The event was opened by the Director if ICATAD, Dr. Muhrizal Sarwani, MSc, with the overall number of participants around 55 people.

Outcome-Based Monitoring and Evaluation (OBMNE) can approach: 1) Workshop on the importance of OBMNE; 2) Training on OBMNE; and 3) Collaboration in conducting OBMNE.
While Dr. Ilham Nyak provided learning a lot about how far the impact of the program PUAP especially against farmer group union and to the wider Economic Area.

PUAP impact on farmer group union can be perceived directly (capital increase), such as increased production, decreased production costs, and increase business profits or indirectly (mentoring and counseling), such as: skills improved cultivation techniques (production increase), increased business capabilities, performance increased farmer group union (helpless and functioning), increased productivity and efficiency (the ability of business)

Economic Impact on roughly PUAP could indirectly (multiplier effect to all stake holders: use of farmer group union business network), among others: (1) If the production increases, trade, processing and services increases, (2) Because the type and scale of operations increased, the demand inputs increased so that the production, trading and procurement services inputs increased, (3) If the farmer group union RTP revenue increases, consumption increases so that the production, trade and services, consumer goods increased; (4) Impact PUAP to GDP / GDP.

As an introductory in discussion of the subject matter submitted by BPTP Central Java and Banten, found some semblance of a strategy that can be undertaken include: (1) the involvement / role of Local Government, (2) improvement and growth of MFI-A farmer group union business; (3) the formation of associations farmer group union, and (4) development of new programs (Central and Local Government).
