A key feature of the evaluation is the degree of innovativeness of the project

We assess the project leadership, implementation strategy, communication with beneficiaries, management of financial resources, transparency and accountability and project review process. Please provide detailed opinion on the project management process.
The third major feature of the evaluation is the assessment of project impact
(question 19). We need to assess how the project affected the target beneficiaries and what improvements it contributed to their life. We also assess how the impact, if any, was measured and we seek to know how the services provided by the project would be sustainable. We would appreciate information on the possibility of continued support by partners for sustaining project benefits through possible expansion and the availability of human and financial resources for these purposes.
Question (20) seeks your assessment of whether the nominated project could be replicable elsewhere either in the same country or in another country. The purpose is to know how valuable this project would be to other beneficiaries and what would be the
conditions that may ensure similar value to other target group (s).
