Provision of an Evaluation Quality Assurance Facility

Universalia was contracted by the UNICEF South Asia Regional Office to provide quality assurance services on its main evaluation deliverables. Universalia uses review instruments to provide feedback on draft terms of reference, draft inception reports and draft evaluation reports. The review instruments provide both a rating on specific criteria as well as a narrative justification for each rating. The main objectives of the services provided by Universalia are to provide managers with an independent assessment of the quality of their evaluation deliverables and contribute to the improvement of deliverables before they are made public. One component of this assignment will be to train reviewers based in South Asia on how to do these reviews.
