Evaluation: Finland’s Development Policy Programmes from a Results-Based Management Point of View 2003–2013
This evaluation finds that the Ministry for Foreign Affairs still lacks a comprehensive approach to Result-Based Management at the corporate level and that future policy implementation should be guided by a long-term strategic plan that is underpinned by a comprehensive Strategic Results Framework. Future policy direction by incoming governments should be in the form of concise policy statements that provide input into this plan.

Overall, the evaluation has three major messages. First, the Bank has been able to produce a good range of regulatory and strategic documents, generally of acceptable quality and highly relevant to its own priorities. Second, the suites are not well organised, due to a lack of clarity and to issues around management of information. Third, the existence of the documents does not guarantee their correct and full implementation.

La méta-évaluation montre l’absence de stratégie de l’administration en ce qui concerne l’évaluation. Les rapports sont demandés au cas par cas, sans que cela ne réponde à une ligne de conduite. Les acteurs profitent de cette souplesse et mènent leurs évaluations en fonction de leurs propres besoins. Ils se servent des évaluations principalement à des fins l’apprentissage et d’appui de leurs décisions, peu pour rendre des comptes.
