3. Need for Establishing a Data Base • NACC has to be supported to develop a functional data base & Resource Center • Basic requirements for a data base are (programmer, space, computers, packages etc.). • Data base has to be linked with other sub-systems to house M&E data (Multi-sectoral, decentralized). NB: Basic requirements should be in place by end of May 2005
4. Implementation of Program M&E System • The program activity monitoring forms will be piloted in May, and we expect the pilot data submitted to NACC by 2nd week of June. • All recipients to submit a first quarterly M&E Report for the quarter October-December by mid January 2006 • CACC review and verify recipients’ reports and forward the same to NACC by mid February 2006. • NB: For these to happen,M&E training, the database at NACC and the M&E manual must be in place
5. Preparation & Dissemination of Program Monitoring Reports by NACC • NACC must make sure that a functional data base is in place and Program Data from implementers is flowing. • NACC will review program data and prepare summary program monitoring reports: covering major activities, targets, outputs, challenges etc. • Annual National M&E Report should be prepared and disseminated by November 2005. • NB: M&E Manager will be responsible for these activities.
