Using Strategic Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) to Accelerate the Implementation of the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2017-2022 (Strategic M&E Project).
Background and Description
On July 15, 2015, Joint Circular 2015-01 on the National Evaluation Policy Framework (NEPF) of the Philippines was issued by the National Economic and Development Authority and the Department of Budget and Management to provide support for evidence-based decisions and ensure program improvement and accountability. The NEPF aims to provide a framework for the purposive conduct of evaluations in the public sector in support of good governance, transparency, accountability and evidence-based decision-making.
Among the responsibilities of the Evaluation Task Force created to operationalize the Policy Framework was to provide overall policy direction and coordination on the evaluation of the public sector. This translates to the development of a National Evaluation Agenda, which spells out the evaluations to be commissioned. The evaluations to be commissioned by the ETF is supposed to focus on themes, sectors, or programs that concern multiple agencies; meta-evaluations of evaluations conducted by implementing agencies and other entities, and on specific priority programs that are critical to the success of the Philippine Development Plan and Public Investment Program. This is different but should be consistent with the evaluation agendas of specific implementing agencies, which are focused on agency-specific programs or projects.
In 2017, NEDA and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Philippine country office partnered to strengthen the conduct of evaluations in support of the NEPF. The Strategic Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Project, which is financed by NEDA and implemented with full UNDP country office support, aims to build the capacity of NEDA and select government agencies to conduct evaluations of priority programs, in turn supporting the achievement of the Philippine Development Program (PDP) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through the partnership, UNDP is supporting NEDA in a) commissioning evaluations; b) developing operational guidelines for the NEPF; c) pursuing initiatives to strengthen evaluation capacity; d) facilitating a community of practice on evaluation; and e) leveraging technology and innovation.
The Project requires the services of an individual consultant to formulate the National Evaluation Agenda Toolkit, and demonstrate how it can be used by drafting and validating the National Evaluation Agenda for 2017-2022.
