M&E Plan: Data Sources Table Example

A monitoring and evaluation (M&E) plan is a document that helps to guide monitoring and evaluation efforts throughout the life of a program. It is a living document that should be referred to and updated on a regular basis. While the specifics of each program’s M&E plan will look different, they should all follow the same basic structure and include the same key elements.

Part of the M&E plan process is deciding on methods for gathering data and how often various data will be recorded to track indicators. This should result from conversations between program staff, stakeholders, and donors. The types of indicators will determine what data collection methods and data sources should be used and how the results will be reported. Most programs need to draw on multiple data sources. This is a table that offers an example of what types of data can be collected and how.
