4.1 Data collection and analysis responsibilities

After monitoring and evaluation systems are designed and indicators have been established, the Monitoring and Evaluation Coordinator should coordinate data collection and analysis. This will involve coordinating with a range of staff across the programme including:

  • field staff or Monitoring and Evaluation officers: may be directly involved in data collection
  • project managers: will be involved in providing information on activities as well as reviewing monitoring results
  • senior managers: will need to review results.

The Monitoring and Evaluation Coordinator should ensure that all team members are aware of their roles and responsibilities in relation to such monitoring activities, and provide central coordination.

CARE International Members will also conduct monitoring visits from time to time. Refer to Annex 9.9 Sample terms of reference for a monitoring visit.
