AS many as 250 senior officers of the Central government will be participating in special workshops on Results Framework Documents beginning Tuesday. Cabinet secretary K M Chandrasekhar (in picture) will be inaugurating the first in the series of six workshops which are being organized at the initiative of Performance Management Division of the Cabinet Secretariat.
