Independent Evaluation of the Kosovo Threshold Program Transparent and Accountable Governance (TAG) Project: Evaluation Design Report
Independent Evaluation of the MCC Kosovo Threshold Transparent and Accountable Governance (TAG) Project
Millennium Challenge Corporation
Insufficient public trust in government and opaque decision-making are perceived to be significant constraints to Kosovo’s economic development. The $49 million Threshold Program between the Government of Kosovo and the Millennium Challenge Corporation, which entered effect in September 2017, includes the Transparent and Accountable Governance (TAG) project which aims to resolve those constraints through three distinct activities: Public Access to Judicial Information (PAJI), Environmental Data Collection (EDC), and Kosovo Open Data Challenge (KODC). As the independent evaluator selected by MCC, Mathematica is tasked with analyzing the effects of TAG programming on outcomes such as public trust and understanding of the government, engagement between government and civil society/media, and the extent to which newly open data informs analyses and decision-making. This report describes our proposed mixed-methods evaluation that anchors quantitative and qualitative approaches in a contribution analysis with process tracing framework.
