Description, justification and technical parameters

Description
The M & E is being implemented in the entire Divisions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The Directorate
General of Monitoring & Evaluation, Planning & Development Department setup has been established in
all divisions of the Province. Each Division has a Divisional Monitoring Office, which have its own
Divisional Monitoring Officer (DMO) and two /three Assistant Divisional Monitoring Officers (ADMO)
along with support staff. Director General is heading the project. (Organogram of the project is at AnnexA) having the following features.

The setup is headed by Director General M & E who is based in Provincial Headquarters.

Two Directors of which each is responsible for his respective Divisions. The Directors are
based in the Headquarters.

The jurisdictions of Director-I include Divisions of Peshawar, Kohat, Bannu and D.I.
Khan.

In the Revised PC-I the new posts of Director Evaluation, Deputy Director Evaluation,
Assistant Director Evaluation & the support staff are included for the evaluation of over
all projects of the ADP, PSDP.

The jurisdictions of Director-II include Divisions of Mardan, Malakand and Hazara.

At each Divisional level, a Divisional Monitoring Officer (DMO) along with two Assistant
Divisional Monitoring Officers (ADMOs) and support staff (Support staff includes
Office/Accounts Assistant, IT Assistant, Driver, Naib Qasid, Chowkidar) are performing
duties under the direct supervision of the respective Divisional Commissioner and report
to concerned Director in the Headquarters. (In some Divisions two ADMOs have been
included based on the geographical location and workload).

The IT Wing will be assisted by Database Administrator, Network Administrator and Web
Developer at Peshawar to maintain a secure web-based Development Projects
Management System (DPMS) in which each Division will use the software to generate
different reports of their relevant projects. The data entered into the system will be updated
regularly by the line departments.

The project has its head quarter in Peshawar and the cost for Head Quarter is Rs. 191.135 Million
(Annex-B). A Divisional Office is equipped with support staff, office Equipment, Furniture, Computer,
Vehicle and management. The Cost for Peshawar Division Rs. 22.122 Million (Annex-E) The cost for
Mardan Rs. 17.367 million (Annex-G), Kohat Rs. 16.945 million (Annex-I), DI Khan Rs. 16.905 million
(Annex-M) and Bannu Rs. 17.292 million (Annex-K) while Malakand Rs. 23.862 Million (Annex-O)
and Hazara Rs. 22.970 million (Annex-Q). The overall proposed cost for six years is Rs. 328.597 million.
Detail of which is placed at Annex-A1.
Justification
The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is a small province of Pakistan with population of 20 million people and
various ecological zones with mountainous North, horticulture-based valleys in the centre and arid zone in
the South. It is rich in water, forest and mineral resources, most of which is yet to be exploited. The
Province has a very small industrial base and service sector. As a result of that, it is faced with financial
constraint and is dependent on the federal divisible pool to the extent of 85% of its budget, which has
current and development components.

-2-

The socio economic indicators of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are low even compared to national
averages and it is estimated that around 40 % population is living below the poverty line. The provincial
government in order to improve the living standard of the people has allocated an amount of Rs.69.284
billion for the public sector development program in the financial year 2010-11. The development program
is comprised of about 972 Projects. Implementation of the Program is carried out through different
Government Departments and Agencies but major role is played by the Communication & Works
Department, responsible for construction of various components of civil works. However, the
Communication & Works Department having an important role in the development agenda of the province
has a low management capacity to execute the projects in time and within the approved costs. The
Planning and Development Department being responsible for allocation of resources and coordination of
development portfolio has not been able to effectively monitor the implementation of development
program. This has often resulted in cost and time over runs along with questionable quality of works as
appropriate quality control systems are not followed in majority of the projects. In addition to that,
outcome of the projects are not evaluated on regular basis to assess effectiveness of the projects and impact
of policies in different Sectors. Keeping in view these facts, the issues need to be addressed on priority
basis.
The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is a poor province with very low indicators in all sectors of the
economy. Any improvement in the management and supervisory capacity, therefore, will be of immense
public value both for the government and the people. Furthermore, improved performance of the province
in implementation of the development program may attract better response from donors in the form of
more assistance. The M & E system proposed under this PC-1 will assist in the planning for strategic
allocation and utilization of the scarce resources of the province.
The concentration of the extended M & E system is the enhancement of the planning and
management capacity of the government by introducing the result-based monitoring and evaluation
system, which will focus on the pre, mid, final and post terms monitoring and evaluation for the projects
under the ADP/PSDP schemes. In addition, the network of 7 Divisional-level monitoring units will provide
the platform for monitoring the sequential rollout of programs and projects across the Province in a way
that generates information for evidence-based policy implementation. It will permit regular application of
progressive and comparative performance benchmarking across the Divisions of the Province, from which
it will be possible to refine what works and what does not work and thus improve the design of
subsequent projects and interventions.
The Communication & Works Department is the executing agency for about 60% of the
development portfolio; therefore successful implementation of the program depends on its operational
capacity both at the policy and execution level. Under the rules of business, this Department undertakes all
the civil works of other Departments except Irrigation and Forest Departments works. The Department is
organized at the Divisional level in a very conventional manner with some establishment at the province.
The personnel of the Department are mostly engineers while the Provincial secretariat has generalists at
various positions. At both these levels, there is no formal skill up gradation program. At the client level,
there is no coordinating mechanism to establish a smooth working relationship with the Communication &
Works Department. Budgets are reflected in the client agencies books and works are undertaken by the
Communication & Works Department. Similarly, requirements and nature of projects is known better to
the client department but estimation and execution is done by the other department. Both of them lack the
technical capacity at the field and Divisional level to determine scope of projects. As a result normally
wrong estimation and design are prepared thereby ending up in revision of projects both from the time and
cost point of view.
The Planning & Development Department was mainly stationed at the Provincial headquarter with
technical sections dealing with processing of projects and an M & E Directorate overseeing
implementation. The M & E Directorate stationed at Peshawar was monitoring the huge portfolio of
thousands of projects in the province. The linkage at Divisional level was virtually non-existent, as the
Planning Officers assigned to the district governments under the devolution plan, had not been provided
with any logistic support for monitoring of projects. The capacity of the M & E Directorate at Peshawar
was therefore limited because of the following constraints.
i.
ii.

The Directorate had not been provided with support in the form of an IT wing.
There was no coordination between the M & E Directorate, executing and client departments.

-3-

The M & E Directorate which was responsible to report on the performance of projects under the
ADP/PSDP in order to assist the administrative departments to detect any flaws, delays, quality standards,
etc was poorly staffed and equipped. Thus, it was virtually impossible for this Directorate to carryout the
assigned responsibility in an efficient manner.
Since the Planning & Development Department is responsible for formulating development
policies, allocating funds and monitoring of the projects therefore, it was duty bound to design a program
for the purpose. It may be mentioned that on the Floor of the House at the time of taking the Vote of
Confidence on Thursday, 10th April 2008, the Honorable Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,
Mr. Amir Haider Khan Hoti, in his policy speech, stressed the need for the strengthening of monitoring
systems in following words:

The monitoring role of the Provincial Departments is very weak although there are officers
available at every level. A proper mechanism should immediately be devised and existing ones
must be strengthened.

The Secretaries of these Departments may be made responsible to brief the Cabinet on a monthly
basis about the progress made against certain indicators like school attendance, percentage of
students that have cleared their exams, number of visits made by different officers, teachers
absenteeism, etc.

It is pertinent to mention that such indicators, as well as a monitoring mechanism, are already in
place at least on paper. It .is follow-up of these mechanisms and their implementation, which
needs emphasis and is the real key to success.

Similarly the performance of the provincial development program was also discussed in the
National Economic Council headed by the Prime Minister of the Country. Besides that the Steering
Committee of the National Commission on Governance Reforms (NCGR) headed by the President of
Pakistan has directed all the provincial governments to set up the monitoring mechanism at the Divisional
level. The following decision was made in during the meeting,
Federal and provincial Government should create Monitoring and Evaluation Units at
District/sub-regional level, which should report to P&D Department of the Provincial
Governments for the provincially funded projects and to the Planning Commission for the
federally funded Projects.
Based on the above discussion and realizing the need for a rigorous and responsive Monitoring &
Evaluation System, the formation of Divisional Monitoring setup was inevitable and justified. Moreover its
continuation is of utmost importance for good governance and proper utilization of public money.
The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Monitoring Framework for the integrated policy, planning, and budget
process (the Framework is attached at Annex-J) has also envisioned a challenging job for Directorate
General M & E. The Directorate General will have a very important role in implementation of Provincial
Monitoring Framework and it has to monitor Comprehensive Monitoring Strategy, Output Based Budgets,
post crises need assessment and Annual Development Plan.
Around 1000 ADP projects will be monitored till June, 2011 and around 4000 projects and subprojects have to be monitored for effective execution of Annual Development Program. At the same time
around 5 evaluation studies annually have to be undertaken in future.
After 18 amendments the workload of Directorate General of Monitoring & Evaluation will also
increase like other departments.
In future it will be greater interest of Planning & Development Department that the development
budget of Directorate shifts to non developmental side.
Moreover the key of this implementable and affordable M & E system is the effective and timely
coordination, which will be aligned with the ADP/PSDP approval mechanism in the Province. However,
this coordination mechanism will have the following three pillars:

Project Approval History, Year Wise Allocations, Releases and Expenditure:


The current setup of M & E was approved by PDWP on 25-11-2008 and M & E system established
in the province vide order No. DG (M&E)/P&D/2008-09 dated 12th January, 2009. The M & E Directorate
in P&D Department consisted of four officers stationed at Peshawar and was unable to effectively monitor
the huge portfolio of around 1000 projects in the Province. The linkage at Divisional level was virtually
non-existent. The capacity of the M & E Directorate at Peshawar was therefore limited. Also in the decision
of the 1st meeting of the Steering Committee of National Commission for Government Reforms (NCGR)

-10-

held on 5th September 2006 under the Co-Chairmanship of President and Prime Minister, following decision
was made,
Federal and provincial Government should create Monitoring and Evaluation Units at
District/sub-regional level, which should report to P&D Department of the Provincial
Governments for the provincially funded projects and to the Planning Commission for the
federally funded Projects.
At the same time the Planning & Development Department, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
in response to the NCGR decision prepared the proposal for establishment of Divisional M & E System in
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, in which the sphere of current Monitoring & Evaluation process has been extended
to the entire 7 divisions of the province.
