Evaluation and Appraisal Services

Evaluation and Appraisal Services


Momentum is competent evaluation specialist with extensive and directly applicable experience to funded projects.  Lead evaluator Orla Casey takes a very structured approach to capture the information required and takes a very personal intervention to truly capture and communicate the spirit of the project, its motivations & challenges and its progress & future potential.  Our evaluation work is differentiated through our highly focused and facilitative approach to enable organisations to the review their commitment to delivering a funded project.  We independently assess the intrinsic value of the project and its impact in meeting its target objectives and milestones.
