Evaluated military grant assistance programs.

Context

The Bureau of Political Military Affairs (PM) is the lead bureau responsible for the global management and direction of security assistance. Within PM, the Security Assistance office (PM/SA) directs over $6 billion annually in U.S. military grant funding to over one hundred partner nations through policy development, budget formulation, and program oversight. PM/SA is the primary steward for two key security assistance programs relevant to this task order: Foreign Military Financing (FMF) and International Military Education and Training (IMET). The Dexis team led a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) effort for both FMF and IMET funding streams.

Approach

The Dexis team created a logical M&E framework by identifying security assistance indicators, codifying data collection methods, and detailing the security assistance objectives by which FMF and IMET would be measured. Using this framework, the M&E team conducted country assessments, took stock of security assistance program effectiveness across the 130-country FMF and IMET portfolio, and created analytical products for use by PM and interagency leadership.

Achievements

The Dexis team captured program trends through a series of country evaluations which were disseminated across the security assistance interagency. In addition, the team was routinely asked to participate in roundtables and meetings to contribute their expertise, including Assessment, Monitoring, and Evaluation community of interest meetings and the Joint Security Sector Assistance Review. The team also crafted and utilized innovative data collection tools, including surveys that capture feedback from political officers in FMF and IMET recipient countries.
