PERI final evaluation
We recently commissioned an external evaluation of the second phase of the Programme for the Enhancement of Research Information (PERI). ITAD, a recognised market leader in monitoring and evaluation (M&E), multi-stakeholder M&E systems, and the evaluation of projects, programmes and organisations, were commissioned to undertake this work. The evaluation combined a mixed quantitative and qualitative approach and included country visits to Bangladesh, Nepal, Kenya and Uganda, plus interviews with representatives from an additional six countries actively engaged in the programme and survey engagement with representatives from the remaining 13 partner countries. The evaluation took place over September-October 2012.
