SASDC DQA and End of Term Program Evaluation

Sector: Economic Growth
Period: 2015 - 2016
Services: Evaluation
Country: South Africa
Client: USAID
Capacity Building: Yes
Description:

The USAID-funded South Africa Supplier Diversity Council (SASDC) had a pattern of under-reporting by its corporate members. As a result, USAID could not measure the impact of its support to SASDC. Khulisa conducted a two part independent evaluation of SASDC to verify results reported to USAID, to explore drivers of under-reporting by corporate members, and to offer data management and programme value recommendations. The assessment recommended how SASDC and its partners could improve data management and data accuracy. The evaluation revealed a more positive story around SASDC’s results and highlighted several success stories around corporate partnerships with small and medium suppliers from disadvantaged backgrounds. This left SASDC (i.e. post-USAID funding) in a stronger position, in terms of their programme focus and data system strength.
