This capacity building training is to guide all government institutions in strengthening the results-based monitoring, evaluation and reporting of all government programs and projects as mandated by DBM in its National Budget Circular 565.  It is also to address the issues, gaps, and challenges presently encountered in its implementation by providing participants with global best practices and international standards that are very useful for benchmarking and real-world applications.

This pioneering learning event is also aligned with the policies and guidelines set forth by the DILG in the exercise of its supervisory powers to monitor and evaluate the performance of the LGUs in the implementation and management of all infrastructure projects through the use of Results-Based Monitoring and Evaluation Systems.
