November 1, 2021

Context and Background

Hivos is implementing a three-year project titled ‘Voices and Actions for Accountability in Malawi’ (VAAM) funded by the EU. The objective of the program is to strengthen the capacity of Malawian Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Media, high spending Ministries, Departments and Agencies and selected local government authorities in evidence gathering, analysis and the publication of findings. This will contribute towards viable, inclusive and transparent public budget and procurement processes. The project is being implemented at both national and district level in 7 districts across the 3 regions of Malawi namely: Blantyre, Dowa, Mangochi, Ntcheu, Mzimba, Mzuzu and Zomba.

Contract title: VAAM Accountability Mid-Term Evaluation System Lab

Location:  Lilongwe, Malawi

Mid-term evaluation

A mid-term evaluation will be completed at mid-point of the project in order to establish midterm data for the VAAM project and the intervention’s overall objectives which will allow project indicators at output and outcome level to be measured and tracked.ln line with the DAC criteria for evaluating development interventions, the evaluation will focus on assessing the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability of the VAAM interventions.

The aim of the midterm survey is to obtain an objective, critical, readable, and transparent analysis of the status of all indicators in the 7 target districts and to understand the difference made between the starting point which was established in the baseline survey against which later progress will be measured.
