ODS was contracted to support the Marriage migration project to help the executing organisations make their projects a success through the process of evaluation. In this approach, the executing organisations and projects were expected to benefit from the external advice provided by ODS, and KBF would in the future be able to recommend certain methodologies that have been proven to work by research and experience. The evaluation paid attention to the process of the projects, their success and lessons learnt, their content as well as their results.
