Priority setting, Monitoring and Evaluation (PME) efforts are critical issues in management of agricultural research and development. Proper logistic support for the management, maintenance and monitoring of institute’s projects would help in effective, timely and successful implementation and completion of the mission and in turn would reflect in the growth of the institute. PME is formed to aid in the effective management of the institute’s in-house, networked, grant-in-aid as well as collaborative R&D projects. Essentially the PME will function as a liaison between Principal investigators in the Institute-Finance Section Purchase Section-and ICAR.
