(MacArthur Foundation, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda) - Quality Assurance
Description: Itad is developing a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework for the MacArthur Foundation's grantmaking in oil governance in the Great Lakes region. The past two decades has seen increasing attention into how corrupt exploitation of natural resources is linked to environmental and human rights abuses. In the Great Lakes region, natural resources have often benefitted only select political and business elites and fuelled abuses and conflict. Therefore, the MacArthur Foundation has recently made a strategic decision to narrow its focus in on oil governance and related infrastructure development in the Great Lakes region, beginning with grants in Uganda in 2012 and in Kenya is 2013.

(DFID, UK, Africa and Asia) - Project Director and Trainer
DFID is undertaking a major initiative on improving its results focus. This is sponsored from the highest levels of management in the organisation, so that DFID is better able to demonstrate its achievements. Part of this initiative is the Results Action Plan. The aim is to strengthen performance and results management within DFID by building and reinforcing basic decision-making and monitoring capacity and skills across the organisation. A component of the Results Action Plan is the internal 'Using Numbers Project' overseen by DFID's Investment Committee, which aim to ensure that monitoring and evaluation of DFID's investments is based on better quantitative targets and indicators with better data collection on them. The Using Number Project has developed a revised logframe format, which it proposes to road test across DFID. It also wants to use this as the basis of new logframe training within DFID, as a component of a broader package of training on Using Numbers in Decision Making, which will include separate modules on value for money calculations.

ITAD has been contracted to design a training course on the new 'Using Numbers' logframe and deliver this to DFID staff in both its UK locations and in two sub-regions in each of Africa and Asia. The course will use case studies based on pilot tests of the new format with staff, and will aim to cover the range of DFID's investment types for which logframes are required, including those in bilateral and multilateral programmes, and projects and budget support investments. The course will take a participatory and interactive approach.

DFID Country Programme Evaluations (CPE) - five annual rounds
(DFID - Evaluation Department (and Irish Aid Evaluation Department for Tanzania), UK; 21 countries plus 4 regions, covering a further 18 countries) - Overall Director of Evaluations; Team Leader (two evaluations); annual synthesis author (two syntheses)
DFID's performance management system is supported by periodic independent evaluations at different levels of operation. Five Country Programme Evaluations (CPEs) or Regional Programme Evaluations (RPEs) are carried out per annum by an independent evaluator. These evaluations provide important accountability and lesson learning functions for DFID. The primary audience for the evaluations is the UK government and DFID senior management, including heads of country offices. Evaluation of operations at country level is increasingly important as DFID has become increasingly decentralised in order to improve the relevance and coherence of development assistance, while maximising opportunities for partnership, influencing and donor harmonisation around a nationally owned programme for poverty reduction.The key aim of the evaluations has been to assess DFID's strategy choices in its bilateral programmes and the effectiveness of its strategy implementation - i.e. the results it has achieved. ITAD has conducted CPEs / RPEs in: Afghanistan; Bangladesh; Cambodia; the Caribbean Region (Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago); the Central Asia, South Caucasus and Moldova Region [CASCM] (Armenia, Georgia, Kyrgyz Republic, Moldova, Tajikistan); China; DR Congo; Ethiopia; Ghana; West Bengal State (India); Indonesia; Kenya; Malawi; Mozambique (twice); Nepal; Pakistan; Rwanda; Sierra Leone; Sudan; the Southern Africa Region (Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, South Africa); Tanzania; the Western Balkans Region (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Serbia); Yemen, Zambia

ITAD has conducted five annual rounds of competitively tendered DFID Country Programme Evaluations (CPEs) and Regional Programme Evaluations (RPEs), as an independent external evaluator, each with Julian as Evaluation Director. Julian has been the primary point of contact with DFID's Evaluation Department, with ultimate responsibility for the delivery of the CPEs. Julian also led the CPEs in China and West Bengal, was deputy team leader for the CASCM CPE, and co-authored two annual CPE synthesis reports. Julian has formulated and directed 25 evaluation teams, including experts in evaluation and aid effectiveness, results-based management, policy and planning, public financial management, budget support, public sector reform, institutions and governance, pro-poor growth, conflict / post-conflict, security sector reform, state building, cross-Whitehall working, international relations, health and HIV/AIDS, education, humanitarian response, civil society, trade, infrastructure, climate change, livelihoods and food security.

Joint Wetlands Livelihoods Project (JWL)
(DFID, Nigeria) - Project Director / Team Leader
Project description: Joint Wetlands Livelihoods Project (JWL). Deepening poverty and environmental degradation have resulted from failure in water management institutions to effectively and equitably manage the Hadejia-Jamare river system. JWL is working to improve water governance at 3 inter-locking levels: Federal/Basin level policy influencing and IWRM, 5 Riparian States/Wetland level collective action on water management, Community level inter- and intra-community resource use planning on common resources, especially flowing water. The project is trying to demonstrate a Drivers of Change approach in action, and thus centres on a multi-faceted communications strategy to establish coalitions of actors with common interests to take action and to inform and influence policy. This includes widespread use of the broadcast and press media, which are used to both inform and create an accountability loop.

Activities: Strategic direction, planning, selection and guidance of technical inputs, quality assurance, communications of results.
