4.4 Management review of monitoring results

Once available, the appropriate managers must review and act on monitoring data. This is a fundamental component of CARE’s accountability. To have available information of emerging problems and not address them is a serious breach of our accountability, so this process of review and action is an extremely important part of the overall monitoring and evaluation system.

Project managers must routinely review all monitoring data relating to their project and take actions to address any issues emerging. Country Office senior managers must review programme-level data that gives an overview of the overall performance of the emergency response, as well as any project-specific issues of particular concern. The role of the Monitoring and Evaluation Coordinator is to ensure that managers have access to available data and analysis in a timely and user-friendly manner, and that any particular issues of concern are drawn to the attention of senior managers immediately.
