3.5 Monitoring of the field work

Completed schedules and a progress report were submitted by the researcher at quarterly intervals. These were examined by the UK team and queries and requests for additional information sent back to the field. Particularly effective examples of the presentation of data on the Matrix by the Indian researcher were circulated to the others (see Appendix 3 for an example). The researchers were required to draw up a plan of visits for each quarterly period, this plan to be monitored by the research supervisor in question. (The data gathered was transmitted directly to the UK steering group and was not subject to scrutiny by local NGO officers).
