PMCG has successfully finalized the second project “Quality Review of the Monitoring of MCA-Moldova Monitoring Data” funded by the Millennium Challenge Account – Moldova (MCA-Moldova). The project was implemented in July-December 2013 by Georgian and local monitoring and evaluation experts.
The purpose of the Quality Review of the Monitoring Data (QRMD) at the base review level was to verify the consistency and quality of data among the program implementing agencies and other reporting institutions. The data review includes administrative data: data collected and reported by government entities, construction companies and consulting firms contracted by MCA-Moldova. The objectives of the Quality Review of the Monitoring Data were to assess the extent to which the MCA-Moldova Monitoring Data met the standards defined in the MCC M&E Policy in the areas of validity, reliability, timeliness, precision and integrity. The PMCG team was to assess data of the two components of the MCA-Moldova Compact – Road Rehabilitation Project (RRP) and Transition to High Value-added Agriculture (THVA) project.
The final report was presented by Team Leader Mr. Mamuka Shatirishvili. PMCG consultants presented the technical approach and methodology, as well as key findings, recommendations and suggested action plans from each of the data quality rounds were introduced to key stakeholders, including MCA-Moldova, MCC, consultants/facilitators, other data collectors, and other stakeholders. After the presentation, the data quality review team held a discussion and answered questions about the project’s findings.
