Abstract

The need to ensure that construction project monitoring and evaluation systems generate the required project information for effective project delivery and decision-making is imperative for project success. The study evaluates the UFPA quality assessment criteria for monitoring and evaluation system in the Ghanaian construction industry. The study employed the use of a structured questionnaire for data collection from forty (40) purposively selected construction industry professionals practising as consultants and contractors. Data collected were analysed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The mean item score (MIS) and analysis of variance (ANOVA) were used to compute the mean ranking of the quality assessment criteria and to compare the difference of means amongst the various groups and the assessment criteria. The findings revealed, in order of importance, accuracy, feasibility, propriety and utility as significant in influencing the quality of M&E systems in the Ghanaian construction industry. The analysis of variance also revealed no significant difference between the response of the two groups of respondents: consultants and contractors. The study recommends the adoption of the UFPA model as an essential quality assessing criterion for construction project M&E systems in the Ghanaian construction industry to enable effective M&E of projects.
