TARGET Ethiopia VFM Support


The Project

The UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has engaged Montrose International to implement the monitoring and evaluation component of the FCDO-funded Education Technical Assistance to an education programme in Ethiopia – General Education Quality Improvement Programme for Equity (GEQIP-E). From March 2018, FCDO has been providing  £110 million to GEQIP-E comprising £90 million Financial Aid and £20 million Technical Assistance. The Financial Aid contributes to a multi-Donor funded operation aimed to materialise the GEQIP-E through a Programme for Results (PforR) managed by the World Bank. The Technical Assistance programme to GEQIP-E is abbreviated to TARGET. TARGET is implemented by a consortium of the Education Development Trust (EDT), Link Community Development International (Link) and Ethiopia Center for Disability and Development. TARGET works with the Government of Ethiopia at federal, regional, woreda and school levels to addresses systemic challenges which aim to improve the overall equity, quality and efficiency of the general education system, as set out by GEQIP-E in a sustainable and transformative way. Montrose will assess the performance of TARGET at various points throughout implementation and provide M&E support to TARGET. LAMP Development is providing Value for Money expertise and support to TARGET which includes improving the VFM Framework and Strategy and conducting VFM reviews.
