Monitoring systems – European institutions

Our team provides clients with robust monitoring systems across policy areas, including fisheries and aquaculture, communications, environment, external action and international development, health and food safety, justice and consumers, transport and mobility.

Our systems generate evidence for progress assessment, future evaluation and impact assessment, while contributing to meet EU institutions’ duties of accountability on public spending. We rely on participatory monitoring processes, which create a shared understanding among relevant actors of what interventions entail and what success will look like, which in turn supports their implementation.

Project highlights

Study on DG TAXUD’s Performance Measurement Framework

Our team evaluated the Performance Measurement Framework of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Taxation and Customs Union (DG TAXUD).

Through our data-driven research and analysis, we developed a proposal and innovative tools for a new monitoring framework. This helped the Directorate update intervention logics, lists and definitions for proposed indicators, suggested roles and responsibilities for stakeholders, and supported the development of tools for data collection, management and reporting.

Technical Assistance for the Partnership Instrument Monitoring and Reporting System

The Partnership Instrument (PI) provides the European Union with a mechanism to promote its foreign policy around the world.

Tetra Tech has been the trusted partner of the Foreign Policy Instruments Service for nearly a decade. We set up and delivered a bespoke monitoring system, the Partnership Instrument Monitoring and Reporting System (PIMS). Our services included technical assistance and support, having provided technical guidance, capacity-building programmes and training seminars for more than 150 individual projects, all specifically tailored to the needs of EU staff and partners.

Project implementation and monitoring support – FPI

Our team is currently supporting the Foreign Policy Instruments Service (FPI) in carrying out and monitoring its activities. Building on the lessons learned from our two previous consecutive contracts between 2017 and 2022, we are now also providing our services to other Operational Units within FPI where a wider demand for our support exists.

We have also extended our support to the Global Europe: Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument, the EU’s main financial tool for sustainable development and international partnerships. Under our contract with FPI, we are offering tailored training, coaching and helpdesk services across a wide range of FPI units and staff in EU delegations.
