Contract partner: Diverse Träger Country: Entwicklungsländer, unspezifisch Funding amount: € 11.550,00 Project start: 20.07.2018 End: 30.09.2019

Short Description:

Overall goal

All strategic evaluations are accompanied by peer reviewers. This peer review is conducted within the Framework of the strategic evaluation Good Governance and aims at:

- Contributing to the quality assurance of the strategic evaluation by allowing peer reviewers to contribute their methodological and sector experiences throughout the evaluation process:

- Supporting evaluation management in developing a suitable evaluation concept.

- Supporting the evaluation team in conducting an evaluation which is up to date regarding methodological and subject level discussions


Expected results

The Peer Reviewer contributes to the quality of strategic evaluations by:

- Commenting in written form on the ToR, the IR, survey questionnaires and interview guide-lines of the evaluation, as well as the draft of the evaluation report.

- Participation in two workshops to discuss feedback with the evaluation team and evaluation management. One workshop will be held in the course of the kick-off meeting, the second workshop will be held to discuss the draft evaluation report.


Target group / Beneficiaries

The main stakeholders of the Peer Review are the Evaluation Team, the Reference Group of the Strategic Evaluation Good Governance and ADA's Management, including Programme Management relevant to ADA's Good Governance work.


Two peer reviewers will be involved - one to conduct a Methodological Peer Review and the other to conduct a Sectoral Peer Review. The Peer Review will be desk based with travel to two events (in Vienna) foreseen, for the Kick-off Meeting and the Workshop on the Evaluation Report.


This Peer Review within the framwork of the Strategic Evaluation Good Governance is the first of ADA's Peer Reviews. All strategic evaluations will be supported by Peer Reviews in future.

    • BMLFUW - Federal Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water
    • EU - Funds of the European Commission
    • Others - various other donors are listed in ADA’s annual business report.
  • Type of Aid – Aid modalities: classifies transfers from the donor to the first recipient of funds such as budget support, core contributions and pooled programmes and funds to CSOs and multilateral organisations, project-type interventions, experts and other technical assistance, scholarships and student costs in donor countries, debt relief, administrative costs and other in-donor expenditures.
  • Purpose/ sector code: classifies the specific area of the recipient’s economic or social structure, funded by a bilateral contribution.
  • Tied/Untied: Untied aid is defined as loans and grants whose proceeds are fully and freely available to finance procurement from all OECD countries and substantially all developing countries. Transactions are considered tied unless the donor has, at the time of the aid offer, clearly specified a range of countries eligible for procurement which meets the tests for “untied” aid.
