In 2019-2020 UNICEF commissioned IRMA to explore the organization’s approach to and the quality and effectiveness of its Third Party Monitoring (TPM).

This new assignment takes forward the recommendations of the 2020 TPM research to develop standardized global guidance and tools for how UNICEF can approach Third Party Monitoring to ensure effective management, improve quality and provide support to Country Offices when using third parties for programmatic monitoring of humanitarian outcomes.

A global TPM Guidance package is being developed with tools including standard operating procedures; codes of conduct; templates; webinars for UNICEF staff and Third Party Monitors; and ‘How to’ guidance covering the full TPM cycle from deciding if, when and how to engage TPM service providers through to capacity building, reporting and quality assurance.

IRMA’s team for this project is Lezlie Morinière and Hannah Vaughan-Lee.
