The TOR asked for robust evidence on three KPIs and three outcome areas. The qualitiative data provided was rich and of a high quality, giving detailed evidence for the outcome areas. However the quantitative data needed further work and the initial claims made by consultants working on the data were questionable. KIT were highly cooperative in remedying these errors when identified.

The TOR asked for benchmarks for the impacts and outcomes which can be used as a point of reference for the endline evaluation. These were eventually provided once problems with the quant data were addressed, however this required considerable input by the commissioners.

The TOR finally asked to provide background information and recommendations to inform the development of the programme. The research of KIT provided rich, detailed information to inform this objecive. However input was needed from the commissioners to develop the recommendations.

Many thanks to KIT for completing this research within a limited timeframe and for being flexible in their approach. The main area of concern arose from work undertaken by external consultants doing quantitative analysis. We had serious concerns about the quality of this work and that these errors were not picked up by the team at KIT. We would recommend reviewing quality control in terms of quantitative and in the quality of work undertaken by external consultants.
