MONITORING AND EVALUATION
BBCA has a Monitoring and Evaluation unit that is responsible for monitoring and evaluating to keep track of the organisational activities and achievements, and the assessment of the effectiveness of the private sector programs.
Monitoring and Evaluation of the private sector’s response to HIV and AIDS
The fourth Strategic Objective of the BBCA is to facilitate monitoring, evaluation and reporting of the enterprises collaborating in the private sector response to HIV and AIDS. A set of specific activities has been developed to ensure achievement of this objective including the following ones:
- Development and operationalisation of a common monitoring and evaluation framework aligned to BHRIMS
- Development and dissemination of appropriate monitoring tools
- Documentation and dissemination of best practices based on the private sector experiences
- Resource tracking earmarked for HIV and AIDS interventions in the private sector.
- On-going monitoring of the private sector response to HIV and AIDS
- Development of a membership database
- Mid-term evaluation of the strategic plan implementation
Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting of BBCA’s strategy and programs
As mentioned above, M&E is one of BBCA strategies mentioned in the current Strategic plan and therefore, BBCA in collaboration with other stakeholders conducts monitoring and evaluation as an ongoing activity during the period of the implementation of the strategic plan actvities. Participatory methodologies arealso applied to ensure meaningful involvement of all stakeholders.
BBCA will conduct two evaluations on the strategic plan implementation. A mid-term evaluation will be conducted after the first two and half years of implementation i.e. 2010. The evaluation may necessitate a re-adjustment or re-orientation of the strategic plan. The second evaluation will be conducted at the end of the Strategic Plan Term after five year period in 2012.
With regard to reporting, all participating or collaborating enterprises will be expected to report on their progress in the implementation of planned activities. This will include specific information and data around set targets and performance indicators. BBCA in consultation with private sector institutions will develop standard tools for reporting. On the other hand, BBCA will compile both narrative and financial reports on the progress being made at the network level. Some of the information will be based on reports from stakeholders and information generated by the secretariat itself. Reports will be presented to the quarterly Board meetings and eventually to the Annual General Meeting. The final reports will be public documents.
