application/pdfAnnual Partner Feedback 2015The successes, opportunities and challenges of the Bangladesh Country Office are based to a large extent on how we collaborate with partners. Partners implement over 70% of the program budget. Partnership issues cut across program and support sectors, and require a high level of coordination if we are to ensure quality relationships. The Partnership Framework provides overall guidance, but regular feedback from our partners is crucial to monitoring how well we are implementing Save the Children’s approach to partnerships. The feedback mechanism ensure quality and learning in our collaboration, but they also ensures that we live up to our principles in the relationships we have with our partners and with the children and communities we are working together to support. Our partners are asked to complete a Partner Feedback Survey once a year. The survey provides quantifiable scores over time to allow the Country Office to track how our partners rate our partnership practices. The questions encompass areas around financial support, non-financial support (i.e. capacity strengthening), relationship and communication and monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning.27/03/20161003KB
