M&E staff and stakeholders reflect on the appropriateness of the M&E system
In addition to the more frequent review and discussion of the data results, set aside
time to reflect on the appropriateness of the M&E system. It is not necessary to
reflect on the system‘s appropriateness during every data use event. Instead, identify
key junctures when sufficient data collection activities occur and when decisions
related to M&E need to be made. For many projects, a quarterly reflection on the
appropriateness of the M&E system is adequate.
Include and engage CRS and partner project staff and managers, key stakeholders
and M&E staff in this reflection process. Annex B includes a list of M&E system
review questions. Plan to adjust your M&E system (as feasible) based on any
weakness identified in this review.
