Monitoring Lead mandate 

Monitoring Leads (MLs) take full responsibility for the implementation of Field Monitoring Visits (FMVs), from engagement with FCDO’s implementing partners (IPs), such as UN agencies, international non-governmental organisations,  in preparation of FMVs to the design of the visits, questionnaire development, training of field monitors, data analysis and reporting, submission of Field Monitoring Reports (FMRs) and revision to FCDOs and IPs being monitored. Each FMV runs over a cycle of 3-4 months, whereby MLs are expected to lead on several FMVs in parallel. MLs work in close collaboration with the senior staff of the consortium’s two field partners, respectively in charge of overseeing teams of monitors in Government and non-Government-controlled areas of Syria.

 

FMV-specific tasks

For each FMV they are assigned to lead on, MLs:

  • Manage IP interaction, including briefing IPs on the conceptual and operational aspects of the SIM II monitoring methodology and addressing with them any issue related to access, authorisations, and particular sensitivities associated with each visit

  • Carry out data collection based on programme/project documentation and interviews with senior IP staff

  • Provide guidance to the field teams in their interaction with the Downstream Partner(s) (DPs) implementing programmes within Syria and data collection at DP senior level

  • Develop tailored FMV monitoring tools based on common standards for all visits adopted by the programme

  • Engage with translators and the field teams to ensure the quality and adequacy of the Arabic version of the tools to be used for each visit

  • Actively engage with the digitisation team responsible for uploading the excel-based questionnaire on to the KoBo toolbox, to ensure that their technical work is aligned with the content they have assigned to the questionnaires

  • Participate in the training of field monitors

  • Analyse the data collected, if needed with the support of junior experts, and draft the corresponding FMRs

  • Collaborate closely with reviewers to revise and finalise draft FMRs prior to submission to FCDO

  • Submit FMR drafts to FCDO and review them based on their comments

  • Share drafts with IPs and revise them based on IPs’ comments

  • Submit final version of FMRs to FCD

 

Cross-cutting tasks

In addition to FMV specific tasks, MLs may be called to contribute to the further development of the SIM II monitoring methodology and standardisation of the tools, as well as to the improvement of the methodology of analysis, and to take part in whole-team lessons learned exercises. MLs are expected to participate in weekly calls held with peers to take stock of monitoring progress and nurture an ongoing exchange of experiences.

 

Communications and line management

  • MLs are contracted by the company Transtec and report contractually to the SIM II Programme Director

  • MLs report operationally to the Deputy Team Leader (DTL) or the Team Leader (TL) depending on the task

  • MLs maintain frequent communication with peers and work in close collaboration with field teams in the implementation of FMVs
