    Presented by Scott Chaplowe, this eStudy introduces six key planning steps for a successful monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system: 1) Identify the purpose and scope of the M&E system; 2) Plan for data collection and management; 3) Plan for data analysis; 4) Plan for information reporting and utilization; 5) Plan for M&E human resources and capacity building; 6) Prepare the M&E budget.  This 6-step approach has been designed to guide programming at the community, regional and national levels. While informed by international programs/projects, it is also very appropriate for domestic (US) programs and projects – wherever M&E is needed for reliable and useful information and reporting to inform for program management and uphold performance accountability.
