  Information, Monitoring and Evaluation (IM&E)

The main objective of the DTCE IME system is to collect authentic data relevant to local governments and civil society, to generate statistics and analyze data from the operational information systems for aid to DTCE planning, execution and evaluation for the promotion of community empowerment at the local level. The DTCE Information, Monitoring and Evaluation (IME) system provides relevant, accurate, timely, and reliable information that is continuously updated. It develops a two-way flow of information from and to various actors and stakeholders.

IME also outsources the tasks of reporting filling, revision, and collection to contracted Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) at district level.
