ARK Centre and its partners seek to maintain high levels of accountability to both beneficiaries and donors by implementing strong monitoring and evaluation systems and using this information to improve quality of program. ARK Centre will support and develop partners to enable them to meet these requirements and adhere to internationally recognized standards. ARK Centre develops an Accountability Framework which will cover the areas of; organizational governance, financial management, beneficiary accountability and participation, and program monitoring and evaluation. The frameworks are developed in accordance with internationally recognized standards and practices (eg HAP, Sphere). Partners use project cycle management to monitor their performance, this includes; project log frames to monitor of progress and achievement of outputs, along with the review of beneficiary feedback, and produce 6 monthly finance and narrative reports. Project impact is assessed by externally appointed evaluators where appropriate and the lessons learned are shared throughout the organization.
