Department background


The mandate of the Inspection, Monitoring and Initiatives Assessment Unit (Evaluation Unit) is still being decided but its main role will be managing evaluations of development co-operation projects and programmes.  Guidelines for the unit are being drafted.  The staff members work part time on evaluation and part time for the Technical Evaluation Unit, reporting to the Steering Committee Secretariat, which is charged with reviewing and approving all development initiatives before they are brought before the Steering Committee to be approved and then implemented.


The publication "Better Aid: Evaluation in Development Agencies" provides individual evaluation profiles for each member of the DAC Network on Development Evaluation.

Each profile provides information on the core elements of the evaluation function set-up and management, including the mandate of the unit, mechanisms to protect independence and ensure quality, reporting lines and distribution of evaluation reports.
