Our work under Sida's Framework Agreement for Evaluation Services
The Sida Framework Agreement for evaluation services is still very active – since October we have won five out of six contracts tendered for. These assignments cover various themes and geographic areas such as civil society in Mozambique, loans and guarantees in Zambia, wastewater management in Sri Lanka and transitional justice in Colombia.
Quality is at the core for all our services under the Framework Agreement. During this last year, we have intensified our efforts on refining and anchoring our quality assurance procedures within the Framework Agreement. With the ambition to be a learning network, we seek to engage our Team Leaders, team members and Quality Assurance Experts in a continuous discussion on evaluation quality aspects. Also, we have had a very good dialogue with Sida on these issues. It is encouraging to see that exchanges on our different perspectives are of mutual benefit - and that this can pave the way for improved quality in evaluations.
