DEQAS: Decentralized Evaluation Quality Assurance System

DEQAS is the ‘how-to’ of decentralized evaluation and quality standards.

The guidance package has been developed to support and guide country offices, Regional Bureaux and other HQ divisions when planning, commissioning and managing decentralized evaluations.

The core of the Decentralized Evaluation Quality Assurance System is the Process Guide. This document is accompanied by a series of templates, quality checklists, technical notes and links to external resources.

Other elements of DEQAS include: capacity development activities to support the use of the Process Guide, an outsourced quality support advisory service and an independent post hoc quality assessment system for all final evaluation reports.
