In Kenya, there is the National Integrated Monitoring and Evaluation System (NIMES) that is meant to integrate M&E systems in the country. The integration entails not only bringing the M&E systems together but more so enabling them as a whole to support good decision making. However, the question is whether this integration is being done effectively or not. The study therefore seeks to respond to this question by carrying out an assessment of the NIMES. The study employs the 12 components M&E strengthening tool proposed by the UNAID (2009) for assessing Monitoring and Evaluation Systems. The study employs the Delphi approach and purposive sample selection methods as it applies the 12 components M&E strengthening tool. Results from the study indicate that Kenya’s NIMES is only fairly functioning given the several aspects that are missing or not being done. For example, supportive supervision and data auditing is hardly ever done, similarly evaluation and research agenda is not institutionalized and neither is it being frequently set. The study recommends increased follow up on the going on at the secretariat housing NIMES to ensure adequate support to operationalize all the M&E components with priority to the components on Surveys and surveillance and on Supportive supervision which are the worst functioning components within NIMES. These two would have an impact on all the others. Owing to various limitations in the study including inability to state clear significance levels of each component to NIMES and the general low statistical power of the study, it was recommended that other studies be carried out with higher inclinations to statistical power and assigning of significance of each component so as to allow informed prioritization of support to operationalization of the components.
