Data collection and management entities

The primary function of data collection and management agencies is the regular gathering, processing, and reporting of relevant data for their respective sectors. In a national evaluation system, data collection and management entities are often established within sector-specific ministries or departments, such as Health, Education, or Agriculture.

These entities ensure data accuracy, timeliness, and relevance, acting as the primary source for both raw and processed information. Key roles may encompass managing data repositories, ensuring data integrity, streamlining data collection processes, and collaborating with other entities to provide necessary data for evaluations.
