USAID/El Salvador Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Project (ME&L El Salvador)
CLIENT: U.S. Agency for International Development Mission to El Salvador
COUNTRY: El Salvador
PRACTICE AREAS: Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning; Communications and Knowledge Management
TIME PERIOD: 2016 TO 2021
ME&A implements the five-year Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (ME&L El Salvador) initiative for the USAID Mission in El Salvador. ME&A’s team provides USAID/El Salvador and other missions in the region continued performance monitoring, verification, Geographic Information System (GIS) services, and evaluation support to measure program impact, results, and achievements. The ME&L El Salvador Chief of Party is Randal Joy Thompson, Ph.D.
ME&L El Salvador is made up of six components: Performance Monitoring; Performance and Impact Evaluations; GIS; Research, Assessments, and Data Analysis; Knowledge Management and Learning; and Training.
The project’s primary goal is to enhance the Mission’s monitoring, evaluation, and learning capability and to ensure empirical evidence for programming, learning, and adapting. ME&A also provides regular periodic reviews of specific activities, as requested by USAID/El Salvador, and as requested by other USAID Missions in the USAID/Central America and Mexico (CAM) regional program.
In addition, ME&L El Salvador can be used to contract individual or longitudinal studies, assessments, surveys, or other related services relevant to bilateral and regional programs.
USAID/El Salvador awarded this $19 million task order to ME&A in 2016 under the Policy, Planning and Learning-Learning, Evaluation and Research (PPL-LER) IDIQ Contract to provide evaluation, monitoring and assessment services for USAID Missions and Offices worldwide.
