Monitoring and Evaluation of the Uchaguzi 2013 Kenya Deployment

  1. 1. Monitoring and Evaluation of the Uchaguzi 2013 Kenya Deployment Angela Crandall Rhoda Omenya
  2. 2. Strengths • Physical situation room a big plus for collaboration • Tech platform was live the whole time and was secured • Citizens, volunteers, and partners appreciated the platform and there was use by all parties • Citizens across the country reported to the platform
  3. 3. Weaknesses • Data management strategy (how to clean data and use it afterwards for future simulations) • Poor time management that caused delays in most aspects of the deployment • Disjointed outreach efforts • Need to track the responses made on information sent to response partners • Not enough training and simulations for co-leads, volunteers, and on-the-ground staff
  4. 4. To Decide for Future Deployments • Start/End Dates – election cycle or election day • Strategies and how to communicate the strategies (partnerships, media, etc.) • Automation in the technology platform • Create list of on-going volunteers (and reach out to them to help with new deployments)
  5. 5. Recommendations • Plan early. • Further build effective partnerships. • Develop strategies. • Use simulation. • Implement solid Project Management structure led by a strong project lead with a team of managers.
  6. 6. Conclusion • Greatest challenge in Uchaguzi Kenya 2013 was time management which is affected by availability of resources. Thus need to balance time and resources management. • Proof of concept was made; users and partners sincerely believed in the utility of an ICT election-watch initiative. • Need to avoid repeating mistakes made in previous deployments.
