The TOR was ambitious and the KIT team did a nice job of prioritizing and addressing the objectives of the TOR. There were areas of the evaluation that I felt could have been covered more in depth and with supporting evidence or findings from our fieldwork.

KIT was professional and easy to work with. The staff who were seconded to this assignment were highly skilled and brought a great deal of expertise to the evaluation team which was valued and appreciated. There was some disagreement between our organization (client) and a KIT staff member regarding the branding of the final deliverables; this deliverable was for a donor and we had a legally binding agreement to adhere to a branding and marking plan between the donor and our organization. This created some difficulty, tension and strong differences of opinion between a KIT staff member and our organization which was unfortunate. KIT and the staff completing the assignment were acknowledged in the deliverables however it would be useful to clarify this and negotiate terms in advance with future clients if KIT has branding expectations beyond a logo and written acknowledgment of the work that is featured prominently in the deliverables. Last, it would be useful for KIT to remind staff that when completing fieldwork for a client, they need to be mindful of and adhere to their (host) codes of conduct in addition to KITs expectations. This was especially problematic when it came to photography and having to ask a KIT staff member repeatedly to not take photos of any beneficiaries, from any distance, unless prior consent had been obtained. Otherwise, KIT staff were pleasant, enjoyable, professional and added value to our team.

I like the KIT team’s constant effort to innovate in the area of tuberculosis- especially focusing on finding the millions of people with TB missing from care.

I think KIT can have more people working on Tuberculosis- it is the biggest infectious killer of humans and a lot of work is needed globally.

Timely communication and updates on status at regular intervals. Noted that there had been staff illness and that assignment proved to be more difficult than initially expected by both sides. This resulted in final product being many months beyond initial agreement. Although this was communicated it was not always proactively done.
