Monitoring and Evaluation Division


The Monitoring and Evaluation Division is mandated to monitor and evaluate projects and programmes implemented at national, sectoral, district and community levels, with an aim of promoting results- based management and accountability in the Government. In this regard, the Division produces, quarterly, mid-year and annual Public Sector Investment Programme (PSIP) review reports from time to time to inform management and the general public on the physical and financial progress of the various projects. The Division also documents lessons learnt and makes recommendations for future programming. The Division is also responsible for coordinating vulnerability assessments and institutionalisation of Community Based Monitoring and Evaluation, among others. The Division has two sections namely: (i) Poverty Monitoring and (ii) Projects and Programmes.

The following are the core functions of the Division:

All the activities and programmes carried out in the Division are guided by the National Monitoring and Evaluation Master Plan. The Plan provides the main framework for monitoring of economic and social development policies and programmes in the country.  It presents a detailed and sequenced action plan that is used for input, output, results, outcome and impact monitoring and evaluation. The Plan has got five components which are: National Development Strategy (NDS) monitoring; poverty, vulnerability and inequality (PVI) monitoring; impact monitoring; development management information systems (DMIS); and a communication and advocacy initiative.  At the core of the Master Plan, is a system that links various monitoring and evaluation aspects into one organized and coordinated framework through the M&E National Coordination Committee supported by M&E Technical Working Group.
