Minimum Quality Standards

There must be a plan developed, including objectives and methodology, which clearly outlines the data that is necessary and sufficient to understand the needs of the target population.

Conduct Problem Analysis

PURPOSE

To identify the main problem facing a population, the causes that contribute to the problem, and the effects that are a result of the problem. Clearly understanding the problem is the first step to determining solutions, which become the results the project expects to achieve.

Minimum Quality Standards

There must be evidence for all the problems, causes and effects that are identified in the problem analysis.

Select the Indicators & Assumptions

PURPOSE

To establish how the project will measure (through indicators and means of verification) each result identified in the solutions analysis and document any assumptions underpinning the logic of the project design. This information is organized in the Logframe and then the indicators and means of verification are transferred to the M&E Matrix, which is the first step in operationalizing the project’s M&E system.

Minimum Quality Standards

The cause and effect logic (IF-AND-THEN) between the project’s results and its assumptions must be validated.

Develop the Project M&E Plan

PURPOSE

To outline the project’s M&E system with sufficient detail to create realistic budgets and timelines. M&E staffing, learning and research needs, data collection and evaluation activities, and other resources needed to carry out project M&E are documented during this process. The M&E plan is used and updated throughout project implementation.

Minimum Quality Standards

Each M&E activity must have a corresponding budget and project staffing must have sufficient budget to implement all M&E responsibilities.
All projects over $1 million must have a dedicated M&E staff.
All projects must budget for an M&E kickoff meeting, baseline, and endline.

Planning

Operationalize the M&E System

PURPOSE

To clarify and validate the ToC with relevant stakeholders and to come to agreement on, collective ownership of, and operationalization of the data collection system. The meeting is also used to refine indicator definitions, finalize indicator data collection methodologies—how, when, who, why—create database and report templates, and create a common understanding about this between everyone involved. Once the M&E system has been operationalized the project then collects the baseline data.

Minimum Quality Standards

The kickoff meeting must be completed before collecting the baseline data.
Each indicator must have a definition that is clearly understandable.
If the indicator has more than one unit (Ex. # people + improved agriculture practices) the definition must define how to count one unit (Count One When).

How do you meet the MQS?


M&E Matrix Tip Sheet
All indicator terms that could be interpreted differently by different staff (adequate, sufficient, etc.) must either be defined, removed, or replaced.
All indicators must describe how the indicator should be calculated. (If needed, projects should document data collection protocols and tabulation strategies for complex indicators. This could be done on an annex to the M&E Matrix)
All indicators must specify a unit of measurement.
All Means of Verification must be linked to a specific staff person who is responsible for it.
All Means of Verification must have both frequency and schedule. If more than one MoV is indicated, projects should detail how the information would be triangulated/analyzed/processed to produce one data point.
All data analysis must link clearly to the unit of analysis.

Establish the Project's Baseline

PURPOSE

To collect the data necessary to establish the project’s starting point for each indicator. The baseline data is compared with endline data to examine change over time and is also used to validate or set indicator targets.

Minimum Quality Standards

The M&E Matrix must be completed prior to collecting Baseline data.
The tools and protocols used for the baseline must be saved so that they can be used during the endline.

A list of indicators must be developed that defines which indicators the consultant are required to collect to establish the baseline, as opposed to those collected by project staff.
The Baseline must be completed before activities start. (The report can come afterward, but the baseline data must be reviewed for completeness before activities are started.)

Set the Indicator Targets (ITT)

PURPOSE

To establish the degree of change the project expects to see in the target population and by when that change will occur. The change is created through the implementation of activities and measured through indicators at the output and outcome level. Targets allow staff to track actual data against the expected results, which helps in evaluating progress throughout the project.

Indicator and activity targets for all project periods (where relevant) must be set.
The “percent of target” formula in the ITT and ATT must not be changed.
The ITT/ATT must be shaded for all reporting periods where no activities are planned or where indicators do not have a targets. (Ex. If no activities for Output 1 until Q3, shade Q1 and Q2).
Any revision to ITT targets must be communicated to the donor and/or HQ. The reason for the change must be noted in the ITT status column.
Indicator targets must correspond with planned data collection.
