Abstract

This dissertation was basically looking into the factors influencing effective Monitoring and Evaluation systems in health-related NGOs in Arusha. The objectives of this study were first to determine the influence of human capacity on effective M&E system, to examine effect of funds disbursement procedure in facilitating M&E activities and to determine the influence of budget allocation on effective M&E system in health related NGOs. A total of 70 respondents from M&E Unit were purposively selected from three NGOs. The study employed descriptive, explanatory and case study design approaches whereby data was analyzed using IBM SPSS version 20. The findings of the study signify that, M&E staff in health-related NGOs in Arusha have adequate knowledge and skills obtained through training. However, training for M&E staff was rarely organized. Other shortfalls were NGOs delay in the release of funds, caused by: the lengthy review and approval processes in the Finance Department. Others are late submission of funds and bank bureaucracy. Furthermore, it was established that although there was a special budget allocation for M&E, release was delayed. The findings concluded that human capacity for M&E, disbursement of funds and budget allocation have influence on effective M&E system. Thus, frequent formal and refresher training, timely planning and submission for budget request are recommended.
