The focus of institutional assessments can be on the verification impacts of institutional action and on the aspects of institutional development and sustainability, such as governance system, management model, planning, monitoring & evaluation system, communication, and resource mobilization. Institutional assessment processes last at least three months and up to a year.


In evaluating programs and projects, the focus is on effectiveness (the results), strategies, partnerships, the team profile, and the dynamics of coordination and evaluation. These processes last at least two months.
