Improving Public Sector efficiency through Monitoring and Evaluation
Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) lies high on the reform agenda of Government of Mauritius with its focus on developing a culture of performance in the public sector and in its ambition to become a high income nation by 2020. The program of reforms initiated through the setting up of an M&E unit at the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MOFED) will help to develop an M&E strategy and framework, its linkages to the Programme Based Budget (PBB), the design of monitoring tools and evaluations including piloting of evaluations and over time the institutionalisation of M&E.
As part of efforts to strengthen performance M&E, the conduct of a few pilot evaluations would prove useful prior to defining a systematic approach to evaluation and a customised menu of evaluation methodologies suitable for Mauritius. The following criteria have been considered in selecting the programme for evaluation:
Building on the progress achieved since the introduction of the PBB, UNDP supports government’s efforts to improve public sector efficiency and effectiveness of public expenditure through the Planning and Resource Management for Inclusive Growth project (2013-2016).
