The study examined the relationship between Determinants and M&E system performance in Trociare funded NGOs in Uganda. Three specific objectives guided the study; (i) To investigate the relationship between human capacity and performance of M&E systems, (ii) To assess the relationship between M&E framework and performance of M&E systems. (iii) To examine the relationship between budgetary allocation and performance of M&E systems. A cross-sectional survey research design employing mixed methods of data collection was used to answers the research questions. A sample of 88 respondents drawn from a population of 90 employees from 10 NGOs was used to collect the data with a response rate of 90.91%. Simple random and purposive sampling techniques were used to select the sample units. Findings indicate that Human capacity was found to explain 35% (Adjusted R square = 0.353) of the variability in M&E system performance and with a strong positive correlation value (r=0.631). The M&E framework was found to explain 27% (Adjusted R square =0.272) of the variability observed in the M&E system performance and with a moderate positive relationship (r=0.539). Budget allocation was found to explain only 9% (Adjusted R square = 0.098) of the variability observed in M&E system performance with a low positive correlation value(r=0.349). It was concluded that the constructs (human capacity, M&E framework and budget allocation) are found to explain the variability in M&E system performance but at different magnitudes. The findings support systems theory. It is recommended that (i) A human capacity Development plan for M&E should be developed, costed and implemented. (ii) Management needs to ensure that all data collected are used in the organization to inform learning, planning and accountability
