Monitoring and Evaluation of the Strategy

HITRANS already produces an Annual Report which provides a yearly account of our work. In addition, a monitoring and evaluation framework has been developed. This will be used on an ongoing basis to measure the contribution that our activities are making to achievement of the RTS objectives.

The key aims of the monitoring and evaluation framework are:

  • To determine the extent to which RTS objectives have been met, and if not met, why.
  • To provide evidence on overall performance and to assess to net additional value obtained from RTS actions.
  • To diagnose where under or over performance has taken place and to identify and assess the causes.
  • To provide a link between transport planning and wider community planning across the HITRANS area and to demonstrate the contribution of transport to the Community Planning Partnerships' own agendas.
