Evaluation of Swedish development co-operation is primarily undertaken by the Swedish Agency for Development Evaluation (SADEV) which has a mandate to evaluate all Swedish development co-operation, and by the Department for Evaluation
(UTV) of the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) with a mandate to evaluate Sida financed activities.
UTV is charged to evaluate Sida development activities, managing strategic evaluations, such as thematic evaluations, and evaluations of aid policy, aid modalities and large programmes. Other departments and teams within Sida are responsible for evaluating their own projects and programmes. These operational ''reviews'' are supported by UTV in an advisory capacity. UTV reports to the Director-General of Sida, who reports to the Swedish Government (in practice, via the Ministry for Foreign Affairs). Both SADEV and UTV work to strengthen partner countries' capacity to carry out evaluations.
