PREPARATION OF THE COUNTY ANNUAL PROGRESS REPORT KICKS OFF
Monitoring and Evaluation activities at the county level are a critical component for the successful implementation of projects and programmes in the county. Monitoring and Evaluation reports provides the feedback necessary for the monitoring of status in implementation of projects and programmes to enable decision-making organs to make informed decisions based on evidence. It’s through the Monitoring and Evaluation Reports that the relevance and effectiveness of the proposed projects and programmes being implemented can be ascertained.
The Economic Planning Unit of the County Government of Nandi coordinates preparation of the Annual Progress Report (APR) in collaboration with implementing government Departments.
The Chief Officer for Economic Planning Felix Sambu officiated over the opening session for a three day compilation of the Monitoring and Evaluation report in Kapsabet town.
The County Monitoring and Evaluation Report is a time to time documentation of the county projects and programmes with keen observations on progress in terms of indicators and implementation status of the programmes/projects.
It is prepared to review progress achieved following the implementation of the Annual Development Plan (ADP). This is, therefore, an enabler in tracking and thus strengthening of good development strategies, learning from
emerging issues and timely remedying of challenges identified.
The County Annual Progress Report is a strategic tool to report the progress of implementation programmes as set out in the ADP 2017/18 and 2018/2019. The report assesses the performance of each of the County government’s department in realising the aspirations of the people of Nandi through the set-out targets in the ADP. It provides information on the progress in the implementation of policies, programmes and projects; challenges encountered; and recommendations for future implementation.
The Economic Planning Unit conducted sessions for Monitoring and Evaluating the status of projects and programmes, which forms the basis of the preparation of the APR.
The process of preparing the APR involves consultations with various stakeholders, a process that ends with the subjection of the report for a validation process to enhance ownership.
