2.1 Create CSO
Beneficiary Table.

(1) CSOs that receive only
grants (grant-only), (2)
CSOs that received only
organizational development
assistance (OD-only), and
(3) CSOs that received
organizational development
assistance and grants
(OD/grant).

Consortium Staff (M&E
Manager, Grants Manager)
BPCS program records
BPCS grant records

Consortium = 2 Frequency table, cross-tabs. Tables will
summarize the type of BPCS assistance
provided for each CSO partner
according to the three major categories
of interest (OD only, Grant only,
OD/Grant). One table will be sorted by
governorate and a second table will be
sorted by the three major categories.
This document will be provided as an
annex but also as a separate document
to enable USAID to sort and filter as
needed.

2.2 How do the
effectiveness of
grant-only and
OD/grant CSOs
compare in terms
of meeting grant
objectives?

2.2.1 Difference in % of
CSOs that meet objectives


Grant reports on status of
objectives, organizational
development plans and grant
documentation

CSO data = TBD Quantitative analysis will compare
variation in meeting grant objectives
based on independent intervention
variables (i.e., grant only v. OD/grant).
Review of (1) sub-grantee summaries
of objectives, and (2) sub-grantee final
reports in order to determine level of
successful completion of objectives. If
appropriate, analysis will allow for
identification of when partial successes
have been made and not only binary
results (i.e., did/did not meet
objectives).

2.2.2 Possible explanatory
factors

Consortium staff
Hub / Sawa staff
CSO Staff
Grant reports on status of
objectives, organizational
development plans and grant
documentation.

Consortium = 24
Hub/Sawa = 12
CSO data = TBD

Qualitative and quantitative analysis to
isolate possible explanation of
differences due to independent
variables. Data comparing % success
rates between the two types will be
further disaggregated by governorate
and type of grant (i.e., humanitarian,
election, coordination, advocacy) to
determine if these factors affect
outcomes. For example, are CSOs
generally more successful conducting
election activities v. advocacy? Or are
CSOs generally more successful in
reaching objectives in one government
than another (which might pertain to an
issue of enabling environment and not
just the BPCS intervention).
Qualitative data from KII (BPCS staff,
Sawa Centers, Hubs) and FGD with
CSOs will help in identifying what
supports might have been most helpful
to achieving grant objectives.

2.3 How did the
OD/grant and OD-
only CSOs perform
vis-a-vis
organizational
assessment tools?

2.3.1 % of CSOs that
improve organizational
functioning

OD Pre/Post Assessments
OD plans

CSO data = TBD Quantitative analysis will compare
variation in organizational capacity
improvements in BPCS’s pre/post OD
assessment documentation. (i.e., OD
only v. OD/grant). Review of (1) pre-
intervention assessment, and (2) post-
intervention assessments one-year later
in order to determine if CSOs are more
or less likely to improve their
organizational capacity as a result of
receiving a grant.
