CBSG brings hands on expertise to the services of NGOs and donors to assist them in the effective use of project cycle management. It brings result-based management (RBM) tools and methodologies in the planning and performance tracking of development programmes. Computerization is an added feature of its performance tracking system. It also provides professional support to NGOs and donors for appraisal and review of project.
CBSG provides specialist services to help NGOs and Donors design development projects in health, education, economic development, rural development, governance improvement and so on. We play the role of a facilitator in the design process where all stakeholders, in particular the implementing agencies, play the anchor role.
We conduct project appraisal for donors and development partners. We look at the relevance, feasibility and sustainability of the project while appraising a project. CBSG has strong professional competencies to conduct project and program appraisal in social and livelihood sectors.
CBSG has strong expertise in conceptualizing a project document into an operational plan, commonly called as Project Implementation Plan (PIP). It uses Performance Measurement Framework (PMF) and spells out expected results, performance indicators, and implementations methods, and pin points responsibility centers / positions, timeframe and reporting structures. The PIP document works as a guide for project implementation, monitoring and reporting on results.
Monitoring and evaluation are integral parts of Project Cycle Management. CBSG has hands on experience on project evaluation, output to purpose review and impact evaluation. CBSG uses both formative and review approaches for project and program evaluation while considering relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and impact both at project design and implementation.
