ACE offers Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) services to domestic and international clients in diverse sectors including the non-profit, private, and public sectors. Having worked with clients including Mercy Corps (MC), the World Food Program (WFP), the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), and the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF), ACE offers an unparalleled service with proven local capacity on the ground and excellent quality in line with international standards.



To monitor projects, ACE first works to assess whether the targets for planned activities and outputs are being met. Second, ACE utilizes the opportunity to learn from current results. If the project is off track, the project team can identify what is not working and decide to change strategy or direction. ACE then drives project teams to utilize lessons learned to improve current project implementation.



ACE uses baseline, midline, and end-line evaluations to assess output, outcome and, if appropriate, impact level results of the project. ACE evaluations not only inform project teams and donors whether their projects have accomplished the intended goals, but also if projects can be replicated and upscaled and how projects may have contributed to the complex ecosystem beyond the confines of the project itself.
