Large-Scale Surveys PROJECTS
Kimetrica was contracted by the United Nations World Food Programme's (WFP) Southeast Asia Regional Bureau to undertake baseline surveys for its United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)-funded McGovern-Dole school feeding programs. The main deliverables included revising country office performance management plans, and evaluation plans and research terms of reference. Baseline surveys of targeted school populations were carried out in Bangladesh, Nepal and Laos. The use of smartphones for data capture greatly facilitated the work, especially following an earthquake in Nepal. Final results and reports delivered to WFP included the identification of key performance indicators, a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) plan, and methods for reporting results.
Research and Evaluation PROJECTS
As part of the Feed the Future (FTF) initiative, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Bangladesh commissioned a review of its performance metrics and monitoring and evaluation systems (M&E). Kimetrica was contracted to conduct an analysis of the existing state of performance monitoring, both at the USAID Mission and among implementing partners. The analysis and recommendations provided USAID with a web-based performance management and reporting system framework that could be implemented across USAID Bangladesh. It included web-based reporting software to allow implementing partners to feed results data into USAID’s reporting mechanism; process enhancement to ensure that implementing partners improved data collection for FTF results indicators; and training and capacity development of Mission staff and partners in the M&E systems.
