Planning, monitoring, evaluation and reporting are four different tools of program management. They are meant to influence decision-making.
The PRC has a strong tradition in PMER, almost all projects implemented by the PRC have log frame, and are well-monitored, evaluated and reported. However, these differ from department to department and between programs of PRC in terms of terminology, definitions, tools and approaches. Furthermore, as an increasing number of bilateral projects are implemented with diverse partners, the PRC project staff has to contend with a variety of PMER approaches and tools.
