Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is an important mechanism to strengthen Executive (Ministerial) and Managerial Oversight. Through the application of M&E, programmes and projects are monitored and evaluated to measure the achievement of the specific goals and objectives for which they have been designed and activated. The resulting M&E reports provide detailed analysis of the areas in which a specific programme / project has achieved and / or failed and measures the impact of the programme / project in terms of its initial goals and objectives. It further provides recommendations on how implementation of projects / programmes can be enhanced and what organisational and structural changes are required. As such M&E reports can also be used for purposes of reviewing policy positions.
BIZCO has vast experience in monitoring and evaluation. Such investigations can be public service wide / province specific / department specific. Reports can be tailored made for the Executive, public service leadership or for Parliamentary and Provincial Legislature oversight.
Forensic investigations or fact finding investigations can be conducted by BIZCO covering areas such as Human Resource Management / Service Delivery / Labour Relations / Supply Chain Management / Job evaluation / Ethics and Anti-Corruption. These investigations are designed to address a specific area of concern by the Executive or departmental management with a view to identify deficiencies and recommend corrective action. In many instances such investigations form the basis for further internal disciplinary procedures.
Once again reports will be tailor made for the target audience.
