Evaluation Specialist to review the Harmonisation Agenda as outlined in the PRIF Design Document, and assessed its continued relevance to PRIF, given what PRIF has achieved to date and given the changes in direction, governance and membership, since PRIF was first designed. The Review had three core objectives (i) review the Harmonisation Agenda, (ii) identify opportunities for and constraints for further harmonisation of processes and improved coordination; and (iii) outline the next steps for developing harmonisation for PRIF. The Review assessed and reported on progress to date, the value-add of further development of the Harmonisation Agenda, and revised the Harmonisation Agenda accordingly. It included a detailed Action Plan as to how the Agenda’s goals (medium, and long) could be achieved.
