It is a document, which actively contributes to transparency, that is may distribute copies of the work plan to persons or organizations who have the need or right to know what is being done, and why, during the given period. The work plan is very similar to a proposal in some things. The difference is that a work plan refers to a project already approved, and determines a time within the project or program segment. Identifies (such as targets) problems to solve, converts them in precise and verifiable objectives, indicates necessary resources and obstacles to counteract, outlines a strategy and identifies the actions that must be undertaken to achieve the objectives and complete results. A proposal has a lot of this, but refers to the total time of the project’s activities, and is drawn up before the adoption of the project activities, to justify this approval.

To get the resources, including the necessary funding indicated in the budget, the work plan serves as justification for the granting of funds, and be controlling, the approved budget for each planned expenditures from one year to another, as well as incidental or exceptional expenses, and funds available, to ensure the fulfilment of the objectives. When approved, the work plan serves as a guide of actions to undertake to achieve the objectives (in writing so that they are transparent for all), and inside or outside the group that implements it, to describe these objectives and results, and to justify actions. Therefore, a work plan meets the needs of those who perform them, group of destination (beneficiaries), managers, planners, committees and boards, donors, not only projects, but also of programs and organizations that work independently in programme documents. What is an exhibition? A work plan is therefore an exhibition.
