Using Strategic Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) to Accelerate the Implementation of the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2017-2022 (Strategic M&E Project)
The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Philippine country office recently embarked on a partnership to strengthen the conduct of evaluations of priority government programs under the Philippine Development Program (PDP). Financed by NEDA and implemented with full UNDP country office support, the Strategic M&E Project will help strengthen the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) capacities of NEDA and key government agencies. This, in turn, will support the achievement of the PDP as well as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through evidence-based decision making.
The Project has the following components: 1) managing the conduct of evaluations of themes, sectors, and/or programs under the PDP; 2) supporting the implementation of the National Evaluation Policy Framework (NEPF); 3) assessing the evaluation capacity of and providing learning opportunities to NEDA and other government agencies; 4) strengthening of a community of practice on evaluations through the M&E Network Philippines; and 5) developing an online portal of evaluations. The Project has also recently been directed to intensify its interventions in strengthening the foundational capacity of the government in results monitoring, including data management. This includes the development of an ICT system for the monitoring of flagship infrastructure and investment projects under the Public Investment Program (PIP).
On the first component, UNDP, on behalf of NEDA, has completed three independent evaluations on themes and programs that are relevant to the PDP (Anti-Red Tape Act, Philippine Action Plan on Nutrition, Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan). It is currently implementing four evaluation studies (National Early Childhood Care Development Program, National Climate Change Action Plan, Micro Small and Medium-Term Enterprise Development Plan, Roll on Roll off Terminal System Implementation), and is in the process of preparing two new evaluation studies (Salintubig, Social Safety Nets). In general, these studies evaluate the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainability of priority social and economic programs that have been implemented or continues to be implemented by the government. Guided by the Project’s Roadmap, the use of completed studies are expected to be maximized by the development and implementation of a plan of action.
On the second component, two responsible parties have been engaged to support the Strategic M&E Project in assisting at least six (6) national government departments in pilot-implementing the forthcoming NEPF Guidelines. This assistance will entail the following: preparation of evaluation agenda, evaluation plans for priority programs, in-depth evaluability assessments, and the identification of capacity development interventions.
The Evaluation Consultant shall contribute mainly to Outputs 1 and 2 of the Project. For Output 1, s/he shall be providing quality assurance for various outputs of the ongoing and new evaluation studies, their corresponding communication products, and supporting the development and implementation of the plan of action. For Output 2, s/he shall review the outputs of the Responsible Parties, as well as relevant RPA documents. S/he shall also support activities related to Output 3 insofar as they are relevant to Outputs 1 and 2. S/he shall report: directly to the Strategic M&E Project Coordinator and Project Officer (Overall Deputy), and work closely with the Project Assistant assigned for the first component, and the Project’s Knowledge Management Consultant. As the Project is a partnership with NEDA, the Consultant is also expected to coordinate closely with the NEDA Evaluation Staff and other relevant NEDA Staff.
