Monitoring and Evaluation

The progress of the Strategic Plan outlined here will be continuously monitored and evaluated over the period 2014−2017 and if required will be adjusted as new opportunities emerge for The Discovery Programme.

Through monitoring and evaluation we will:

» Review progress

» Identify problems in planning and / or implementation

» Make adjustments so that we will ensure that we remain effective

For each of the seven key tasks, working groups will be formed. These groups will develop implementation plans and performance targets to document progress under each task, facilitated by additional experts in specific areas where required. To facilitate transparency these performance targets will be set out and reported on in successive Annual Reports. An external quality review will also take place on a 3-year cycle to provide critical validation for the Plan as a whole.

A new strategic review and plan will be initiated in early 2017, with the aim of publication by 2018.
