    • End of the Task Order and Phase II
    • Closing Out Phase II and TO
      Phase II ended September 2009
      Currently compiling EOP report
      Task Order ended March 2009
      165 of 185 deliverables completed (89%); Further 11 in final stages of review/production
      9 of 19 PMP targets met or exceeded
      More likely to meet process/output targets than outcome targets
    • Why did we not meet some targets?
      Some targets too ambitious - outcome targets (e.g. use of data) further from our control
      Inter-dependency between project results in demand-collection-use cycle
      Challenge of measuring outcomes in our area of work
      Reporting burden of evidence-based narratives
    • Evaluating M&E and HIS
      More attention needed on measuring and documenting outcomes relevant to M&E/HIS
      Educate on M&E/HIS strengthening as a health systems intervention – not just about reporting
      Streamline and simplify results reporting process within project
      Prior planning and more support for M&E within the project
      Critical component of our global leadership role
