The SCORE (Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises) program of the International Labour Organization (ILO) supports small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in becoming more sustainable through being cleaner, more productive, and competitive, and by providing more sustainable and decent employment. SCORE operates in manufacturing and service sectors and industry clusters, providing assistance through regional and national training organizations and industry associations. The program is funded by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD).
In spring 2011, BSD Switzerland conducted a mid-term evaluation of the SCORE program in order to give feedback as to whether the project strategy, implementation mode, monitoring & evaluation (M&E) system, work plans, and resource allocations were suitable to reach the project objectives. The evaluation reviewed the activities of three SCORE countries − China, Indonesia, and South Africa, and further included the SCORE global component in Geneva. The methodology used for the evaluation consisted of desk research, telephonic interviews and face-to-face meetings.
