Economic Stat Programme Evaluation

Leave a comment

The Department for International Development seeks a supplier to conduct an evaluation of its Economic Statistics Programme. The programme aims to improve the quality and availability of economic statistics by strengthening the capacity of national statistics systems. The evaluation will be used for both accountability and learning purposes. This will be a summative and process evaluation. It will require a mixture of qualitative and quantitative methods to assess the intervention on the basis of its contribution to development outcomes and impacts within its context. It is expected that a theory based approach and robust mixed methods to be used. An important assumption to test is whether policy makers are using the economic statistics, which have been improved or produced as a result of this project, and whether this use led to improved policies or decisions.

Deadline for expression of interest: 27 May

Funding available: £300,000
