Established in 2010, the M&E Unit has continually served its role of providing support to strengthen Planning, Implementation, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting ensuring compliance with Memoranda of Understanding and Standard Operating Procedures. In 2011, the unit continued to develop tools to facilitate the above role. The process of developing indicators for tracking progress and measuring long-term impact of programmes was initiated and is planned to continue in 2012. This process takes into account national, regional and global trends and frameworks. Further, the Society’s M&E Manual will be completed and operationalised. The key focus for the Unit in 2012 will be to facilitate strengthening of data management, grants monitoring and decision-making systems and processes at all levels. This will include automation of data capturing, transmission and analysis aimed at shortening the decision making cycle and strengthening management of the KRCS database.The Unit will also continue to support programmes in establishing and operationalising performance standards and complying with MOUs and SOPs. The Unit will facilitate documentation and scale up of lessons learnt and best practises both internally and externally. It will also offer support in conducting operational research contributing to policy formulation and review nationally, regionally and globally. Further, the Unit plans to publish at least one article in a peer-reviewed journal on KRCS’ work in the humanitarian world in 2012.
