Evaluation of Strengthening Research and Knowledge Systems (SRKS) – Value for Money analysis

Multi-country

The Project

The Strengthening Research and Knowledge Systems (SRKS) programme, was a five-year, £10.2m programme jointly funded by DFID and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and implemented by INASP between 2013 and 2018. The programme aimed to increase sustainable (a) access to and (b) production of research literature in particular low income countries. The expected impact was that research knowledge contributes to economic and social development. The programme was being delivered in 24 countries at once, with focus on Tanzania, Sri Lanka, Ghana and Kenya.

 

LAMP provided inputs to the evaluation including a value for money assessment of the programme.

Highlights

  • Multi-country project (24 countries)

Client Testimonial

Lamp Development provided expertise to help shape our VFM Approach. They worked in a collaborative style, built a strong working relationship with staff and produced practical outputs which is exactly what we asked for. The outputs have already been used by our Project Managers to improve how we report VfM within on-going projects and words have also been included to increase our VfM scoring within bids. Thanks for all the help!
