Description:The Routine Data Quality Assessment (RDQA) is a simplified, self-assessment version of the DQA Tool. It allows programs and projects to assess the quality of their own data and strengthen their data management and reporting systems. The RDQA is generic with regard to indicators and programs. It is intended for use with or without rigorous sampling methods. It is designed to be flexible and can be used by program managers, supervisors, and monitoring and evaluation staff at national and subnational levels, and by donors and stakeholders.
