Summative evaluation of DFID’s Caribbean anti-corruption programming
2017-2018; DFID; Jamaica
DFID has been supporting anti-corruption programming in the Caribbean since 2009. The current programme, the Caribbean Anti-Corruption Programme (CACP), started in 2015 and builds on the results and learning of three previous programmes.
Recognising that corruption is an interrelated, multi-faceted issue, the CACP takes a multi-pronged approach; supporting three Jamaican anti-corruption agencies and one regional agency. DFID commissioned Itad to undertake a theory-based evaluation to test this approach.
The evaluation carried out by Itad will include refining and testing the programme’s theory of change; to better understand the outcomes of the CACP, assess their likely contribution towards overall impact, and assess the influence of other contextual factors. The evaluation will consider activities within the previous programmes and their contribution towards outcomes, where relevant. The methodology will be primarily a summative evaluation with formative elements, being theory-based and participatory, combining qualitative and quantitative data measurement, assessing contribution and conducting a contextual analysis including how corruption relates to men and women. The team of highly experienced international and national evaluators and experts in the field of anti-corruption will work together on this assignment, focusing on Jamaica. The inception phase will be carried out between October and December 2017, and implementation phase between January and May 2018.
