In the reformed CGIAR, monitoring responsibilities have been transferred to the Consortium, and evaluation is the responsibility of the independent evaluation arrangement.
As per the Joint Agreement (JA) concluded between the Consortium and the Fund Council (FC) in April 2011, the Consortium Board (CB) has "the overall responsibility for monitoring research under the SRF and managing the monitoring system" (Article 22.1 of the JA). This includes monitoring the performance of the Centres and any Partners with respect to each CRP (Article 22.2 of the JA) and is independent of the origin of the funds. Consistent with this, the Consortium Constitution provides that the Consortium shall "develop, in cooperation with the Member Centers, approve and manage performance of the CRPs" (Article 5(2) (c)). The monitoring system described in this document thus concerns all the work carried out by the CRPs, regardless of their sources of funds.
