• Compliance of the attained results and deliverables in line with the project LFM;

• Status of the IQA manual which should be typically validated by the HEI or be in the process of validation;

As stated, the Monitoring visit would also raise several questions on the project’s impact at the University-level, Ministry-level and the QA Agency-level and would be also accompanied with the questions on the sustainability actions by the Kazakh partners after the project’s lifetime.
