A newer version of this product has been integrated with the CIP Costing Tool available on the HP+ website.

The Family Planning CIP Gap Analysis Tool is an Excel-based tool that helps countries estimate the financial gap between the costs associated with implementing detailed costed implementation plan (CIP) activities and the annual funding commitment by government and donors for supporting the plan’s implementation. The gap analysis tool is designed to be used in conjunction with the Family Planning CIP Costing Tool (also part of the CIP Resource Kit), but allows the user to input cost data from any source (for instance, if the original CIP was costed using a different methodology). The tool can be used at the national level—or subnational levels—to help policymakers, decisionmakers, partners, and donors better plan and advocate for an effective FP strategy and is most effective as part of the initial CIP development or an annual CIP review process. The CIP Gap Analysis Tool User Guide provides step-by-step instructions for applying the tool. 

The Family Planning CIP Gap Analysis Tool is designed for use in developing a comprehensive plan that meets the standard level of costing and gap analysis detail recommended for CIPs, which includes costs associated with specific activities within each CIP thematic area. For countries that wish to apply the CIP Gap Analysis Tool in support of an existing CIP or strategic plan that does not include activity-level costs, the Simplified CIP Gap Analysis Tool may be more appropriate.
