Abstract

The general objective of the study was to assess and understand why there is limited improvement in monitoring and evaluation system on projects for orphans in Iringa Municipality. The statement of the problem was “Despite the efforts that the Tanzanian Government has done, as URT (2010) concludes, why there is no improvement of M&E systems in the organizations dealing with orphan projects in Iringa Municipality?” Mixed research approaches were used. These are qualitative and quantitative approaches. The study area was Iringa Municipality. Purposive sampling techniques at both CSO level and within CSO were used to select a representative sample of 60 respondents. The researcher’s findings revealed that many employees in Iringa Municipality in CSOs have low knowledge and skills in monitoring and evaluation. To rectify the situation, CSOs in Iringa Municipality have to prepare training policies and programs to carter for trainable employees so that they are trained at different periods depending on the availability of financial resources. Team Leader and Social Scientist have to attain at least a Master degree in Monitoring and Evaluation, Human Resources Officers have to attain at least a degree in Human Resources Management, and Accountants have to attain at least a degree in accounting and finance. Field staffs have to attain at most a diploma in monitoring and evaluation. Other cadres may be trained under the On Job Training Programs.
