3 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Data needs assessment To decide, a thorough data needs assessment needs to be carried out Assess whether MICS (or another survey) will be the answer to fill the data gap(s) in question

4 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop UNICEFs role On monitoring-related issues, UNICEF works closely with NSOs and other relevant national organizations UNICEF will be/is working closely with governments to assess data needs, on the basis of the MICS indicator list

5 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Once a decision has been made… ….the process will start

6 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Always to remember Survey planning, design, implementation and dissemination is a continuous process Decisions made in one area influence others Some may be irreversible

7 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Getting started Establish steering committee –…and technical committee Define roles and responsibilities, accountabilities: the MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) Identify survey coordinator and key personnel Decide on basic features, such as content, reporting domains, sample size, fieldwork personnel needed Produce survey plan, including timetable and budget

8 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Steering Committee Instrumental in full national ownership Senior staff from implementing agency, UNICEF, other partners in development, relevant line ministries and stakeholders Meet at critical points during implementation – funding and advocacy, review and approve MoU and survey plan, review survey progress…

9 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Steering Committee Objectives/Tasks –To ensure transparent decision-making –To identify a collaborative approach to fund- raising –To promote understanding for and utilisation of survey and results –To oversee smooth implementation

10 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Steering Committee Appoint technical experts to a Technical Committee which works under the Steering Committee Composed of technical staff from some of the organizations represented Advise Steering Committee on technical decisions and processes

11 MICS4 Survey Design Workshop Memorandum of Understanding Between government and UNICEF (and other partners) –Defines roles and responsibilities, accountabilities, –Access and use of data, –Modes and areas of collaboration
