During Project Design The evaluation process will be guided by an approved evaluation approach paper (EAP) (or in some specific cases a concept paper) which defines the intended study, i.e., key evaluation issues and questions, methods and approach, inputs and activities. The formulation of the EAP will involve interactions between IED staff and ADB operations (including interdepartmental review or commenting on the draft paper) and non-operations staff, representatives from the international evaluation community, non-government organizations, and, where appropriate, consultations with relevant study countries.
During Project Implementation The implementation of of each evaluation study will include a mixed set of (i) country visits to meet beneficiaries and affectees (including vulnerable groups), (ii) in-country meetings with DMC government staff, non-government organizations, and development partners, (iii) consultations with operations and non-operations staff at ADB headquarters and in resident missions, (iv) targeted field interviews/surveys, and (iv) video conferences with relevant evaluation units, international think tanks etc.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services Evaluation studies under the TA are tentatively estimated to require about 47 person-months and 64 person-months of international and national consulting inputs, respectively. Specific requirements for each evaluation will be reviewed and finalized during the preparation of an appropriate concept paper or evaluation approach paper.
Procurement Requirements for seminars/workshops and other goods will be determined during the preparation of an appropriate concept paper or evaluation approach paper for each major evaluation.
