MONITORING AND EVALUATION AS TOOLS FOR ACHIEVING SUCCESS IN THE PERFORMANCE OF GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION PROJECTS (A REGIONAL SURVEY

CHAPTER ONE
 1.0 INTRODUCTION
 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
 A well-thought and effectively executed project to a large extent contributes to national development. For a project to be implemented and objective of it realized, a thorough monitoring and evaluation of it has to be carried out. Any government intervention project embarked upon without adequate monitoring and evaluation is just like flogging a dead horse as the project is going to be abandoned at last. So before a project is embarked upon, adequate monitoring and evaluation should be carried out to ensure success in the performance of government intervention projects. In effect, therefore, project evaluation and monitoring could operate in an interacting manner to ensure that plans. Goals or objectives are attained. Since monitoring is primarily concerned with accessing the progress achieved in implementing an objective or programme efficiently and effectively, the executors of the project through the monitoring and evaluation process can control what is going on and accordingly take timely action to resolve possible problems by adjusting the original plan of action. The importance of project monitoring and evaluation cannot be over stated against the background of the numerous cases of government-abandoned projects in developing countries like Nigeria. Many projects in Nigeria whose viability and feasibility were ascertained got stalled due mainly to shoddy monitoring and evaluation on the part of executors who either lacked effective project monitoring and evaluation skill or that the promoters of such projects failed to heed the relevant reports of the executors at the appropriate time until it was too late. Monitoring and evaluation are so closely related that they are most often used interchangeably. However, a distinction should be made between the two concepts. Whereas monitoring and evaluation examines set out indicators of progress such as financial statements, and compares expenditure with actual budgets to asses conformity with established work plan, evaluation is concerned with determining the effectiveness and impact of the programme output. The evaluator whether internal or external to the programme team ask questions on what is being done, why and how well. He goes further to find out whether the objective being pursued as previously planned is still relevant in the face of certain unforeseen factors that occurred between the time the programme was formulated and the time the implementation process is going on. The evaluator could carry out the exercise of evaluating during the programme implementation to analyze the impact of the programme to the economy and provide a basis for decision-making with regard to future phases of the project implementation process. Inadequate monitoring and evaluation will lead to project abandonment. Project abandonment will result to colossal waste of scarce resources, poor economic growth rates, and low income per capital, political instability, technological backdrop and the failure syndrome. It is in the light of the above that the researcher has decided to write on the monitoring and evaluation as tools for achieving success in the performance of government intervention projects with particular reference to South-Eastern region of Nigeria.
