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.

This experience has led to several insights about the information and preparation needed to create a positive process and high quality data.
