PTC M&E Services

Introduction to Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E)

“Monitoring involves the continuous and systematic collection and analysis of data, while evaluation is the objective assessment of an ongoing or completed project. Strong, effective monitoring and evaluation is essential to successful social fund projects because it allows stakeholders, project managers and governments to determine how well projects are meeting objectives.  Monitoring and evaluation builds greater transparency and accountability while providing project staff with a clearer view of the use of project resources and the process for decision-making.  Future project planning and development is improved when guided by lessons learned from project experience.”(

PTC M&E Engagement Model

The PTC team work closely with our clients to deliver successful engagements through three primary methods:

1.       Project based. The client and PTC define specific project scope, timescale and costs

2.       Retainer based. The client retains PTC for regular, ongoing support focused on continual improvement of M&E.

3.       Ad hoc services based. The client uses an “as required” approach to engage PTC as the need arises.

PTC has the capacity to cater for one or multiple of these engagement models according to the requirements of each client.
