Analysis and evaluation of interventions

Monitoring, evaluation and knowledge management

Throughout the implementation of plans, programs, and projects, it is important to determine if the appropriate route for meeting the proposed objective is being followed and to report design and implementation flaws, in order to correct such flaws and enable the desired results.

Monitoring (or tracking) is a process that allows the verification of whether or not an activity is being carried out as planned within a certain timeframe, as well as the estimation of how likely it is to achieve the planned goals.

Evaluation is a process through which it is possible to quantify the effects generated by an activity, as the result of comparing the initial situation (baseline) and the status after the activity is carried out.

There are two types of evaluations: (i) evaluation of the management performance of the plan, program or project implementation, as well as measurement of the relevance of the actions and the effectiveness of their results; and (ii) impact assessment, which analyzes the effects of the plan, program or project, considering a counterfactual.

To implement a monitoring and evaluation process, an information system. This entails the design of information collection processes, as well as information systematization and analysis, from the initial design stage of indicators, to the results and impact assessments.

APOYO Consultoria provides advice to clients in the following areas:

  • Design of indicators for monitoring and evaluation processes.
  • Design of information systems.
  • Establishment of baselines for plans, programs, and projects.
  • Evaluation of the performance of public interventions, programs, and projects.
  • Medium-term and final evaluations of programs and projects management.
  • Impact assessments.

Experiences

Qualitative assessment of the Pension 65 program

The study consisted in a design of a qualitative methodology to identify and analyze the perceptions, experiences, and opinions of users of the Pension 65 program, and the effects and impacts generated by the program on their lives. To perform this task successfully, it was necessary to listen to beneficiaries, observe them in their daily lives, as well as interact and participate in their social context. In this regard, for the development of this project, qualitative research techniques were used (e.g. in-depth interviews and participant observation).

Evaluation of results of the Municipal Modernization Program (PMM)

As part of the advisory, the program’s logical framework matrix was reconstructed. In line with this, the order, purpose, and outcome of the PMM were defined through performance and process indicators for the monitoring of the program and its future impact assessment. Similarly, surveys were applied to a sample of municipalities, and interviews with key stakeholders were conducted to identify the effects of the PMM over the defined indicators, the problems in the implementation and execution of the PMM, the relevant value chain of services; as well as to determine the factors explaining the improvement in municipal management.
