On July 27, 2015, USAID awarded a task order to QED Group to implement Eastern Provinces Monitoring under the Monitoring Support Project (MSP). QED provided additional data on the MSP’s implementation to help USAID Mission for Afghanistan’s technical teams compare monitoring information and make management decisions on the project’s performance.
MSP supplemented existing USAID/Afghanistan monitoring efforts and functions as a part of a multi-tiered approach to the verification and monitoring of USAID projects in eastern Afghanistan. Technical officers in the USAID Mission use the information gathered and reported by MSP to inform their decision-making processes in managing USAID implementing partner performance in Afghanistan.
As part of the task order, QED partnered with other MSP task order holders to collect data and provide third party monitoring to USAID-funded projects throughout Afghanistan.
