During Project Design

Selected Evaluation Studies. 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.

Evaluation Outreach, Knowledge Sharing, and Partnership Initiatives. With assistance from ADB's in-country Events Management Coordinator (national consultant), the host or collaborating partner in the DMC will help organize the planned knowledge sharing and learning event for policymakers, decision makers, and associated stakeholders.

During Project Implementation

Selected Evaluation Studies. 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 resident missions, (iv) targeted field interviews/surveys, and (iv) video conferences with relevant evaluation units, international think tanks etc.

Evaluation Outreach, Knowledge Sharing, and Partnership Initiatives. With help from ADB's in-country Events Management Coordinator (national consultant), the host or collaborating partner in the DMC will facilitate the planned knowledge sharing and learning event for policymakers, decision makers, and associated stakeholders.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

Evaluation studies under the TA are tentatively estimated to require about 46 and 88 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 (EAP).

For the learning events, in-country national consultants (i.e., events management coordinator) will be recruited to help organize, implement, and coordinate the events. Resource persons will also be engaged to serve either as panelists and moderator for every learning event.

Procurement Procurement requirements for training/seminars/conferences and other goods will be determined during the preparation of an appropriate concept paper or EAP for each major evaluation.
