Monitoring Evaluation and Learning Framework

The Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Framework (MELF) is the DFAT performance monitoring system for the Australian Volunteers Program. The MELF is designed to:

  • provide qualitative and quantitative data on program-level performance
  • link data collection, monitoring, evaluation, reporting and learning across the program
  • build on existing monitoring and evaluation systems and procedures
  • contribute to ongoing program monitoring in-country and in Australia, and
  • feed performance assessment lessons into program improvement.
