MRAG is able to offer stand alone Programme (and project) monitoring and evaluation (M&E) services or as part of wider Programme management and implementation. M&E and impact assessments aim to evaluate the progress of a programme or project against its goals. Often these are defined in a framework (e.g. Logical Framework) where the expected outcomes, outputs and activities are defined. Such evaluations may occur annually, at the mid term review, or after the project/programme is complete. Impact assessment however extends beyond the logframe and we have experience of a number of other methodologies (e.g. Most significant change) and innovative approaches (e.g. use of multimedia tools to gather feedback). MRAG has considerable experience of impact assessment and evaluation applied to Programmes we have managed and of evaluating projects for clients. We offer a range of services:

  • Project technical audits (i.e. against activities, logframe etc)
  • Ex post project reviews and Impact assessments (i.e. have outputs been delivered and outcomes achieved)
  • Programme level reviews across a suite of projects/activities
  • Quality evaluation and assurance
  • Lesson learning and communication of outcomes
  • Policy evaluation
