Announcing Prime Contract Award: Monitoring and Evaluation IDIQ (EVAL ME)

Panagora is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a prime contract under USAID’s total small business set-aside to provide monitoring and evaluation services through the EVAL ME IDIQ under the Office of Learning, Evaluation, and Research in USAID’s Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning (PPL/LER).

Panagora and our partners appreciate the pivotal role evaluation and performance monitoring play in achieving USAID’s vision for reform and improved aid efficacy — guiding development policy, strategy, and programming. Under this IDIQ, we will provide technical and advisory services to USAID missions and bureaus in carrying out performance and impact evaluations, supporting performance monitoring, building M&E capacity, and identifying and sharing lessons learned.

Complementing Panagora’s decades of IDIQ experience and unique blend of M&E, capacity building, and CLA experience, our consortium includes major subcontractor Grant Thornton LLP with its global presence and deep M&E, data management, and finance expertise; and other small businesses with specialized expertise across EVAL ME technical areas, including Evans Incorporated, Food Economy Group, IMPAQ International, J.E. Austin Associates, Johnson Law Group International, Natural Resources Consulting Engineers, Newdea, Overseas Strategic Consulting, Scintilla Consulting, Seward, and Sonjara.

Panagora’s IDIQ Manager, Dr. Dan Blumhagen, brings three decades of expertise in designing and implementing performance management and evaluation systems, in USAID and as a consultant. He has conducted numerous evaluations, and is equally adept in performance M&E policy, implementation, oversight, and capacity building.

Panagora and our partners are excited to play a part in achieving USAID’s M&E vision and helping drive better development outcomes through a learning and adapting approach to M&E.
