Abdou Musonera | Dr. Patrick Mulyungi 
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the factors influencing performance of monitoring and evaluation systems of National Employment Programme. The current study targeted planning and Monitoring and Evaluation staff from NEP central implementing institutions and the staff from business development and employment unit at district level who are in charge of coordination, monitoring and evaluation of NEP interventions at decentralized levels. The sample used in this study was selected using non probability sampling that is purposive sampling where the sample to be used in the current study was exclusively composed of planning, monitoring and evaluation staff from NEP central implementing institutions and the staff from Business Development and Employment Unit at district. Primary data were collected through the administration of written questionnaires to 215 staff (planning, monitoring and evaluation staff NEP central implementing institutions and staff from BDE unit at district level). The respondents were given oral instructions and then handed the questionnaire to fill. Correlation and regression analysis were used to analyze data. The relationship between different independent variables was measured using Pearson correlation coefficient. In addition, the relationship between independent variables and dependent variable was examined using multiple regression analysis technique. There is significant positive relationship between human capacity and the performance of monitoring and evaluation systems under National Employment Programme. The results suggest the need to increase both financial and human resources invested in the operationalization of M & E systems under National Employment program to ensure the efficient and effectiveness in the implementation of the programme. The results also suggest the need for continued investment in capacity building of monitoring and evaluation staff and the establishment of strong and experienced Monitoring and Evaluation unit.
