Evaluation, Quality Assurance and Learning Service EQuALS

LTS is delivering a range of core evaluation and monitoring specialised services to assist the DFID’s embedding evaluation agenda. These specialist services are also available to build capacity in DFID’s partner development countries.  DFID is working towards raising the standard on evaluation and supports users of evaluation located within partner developing country national governments, the not-for-profit sector and the private sector to promote better quality evaluation. LTS is providing short term evaluation and technical expertise inputs to deliver clear and robust evidence to support results and value for money across DFID’s investments; evidence, to be routinely used by DFID staff, including from monitoring reviews and evaluations, when designing and building evaluability into new programmes; a rapid expansion of monitoring and evaluation for larger and innovative programmes or where the evidence base is particularly weak; greater use of rigorous impact evaluations, using best practice international methods to assess the impact of programmes; and increased access to monitoring and evaluation advice and services for HMG staff and partner governments.

DFID places strong emphasis internally on the development and strengthening of programme M&E skills. LTS provides expert technical evaluation support on a demand basis through EQuALS through the DFID Evaluation Department. The service is available to DFID staff, DFID partners across ten Departments. EQuALS provides technical support, in three categories, across a broad range of thematic areas: (i) evaluation and monitoring planning and strategy to cover tasks such as business case design, advice on evaluation approaches and methods, and evaluability assessments; (ii) evaluation design and approaches, particularly impact evaluation and other complex evaluations; (iii) quality assurance of evaluation products at ‘entry’ and ‘exit’ levels to ensure they are robust and coherent.
