In addition, the IEO also supports the Administrator’s efforts to strengthen the methodology and conduct of decentralised evaluations, i.e., evaluations carried out by the programme units of UNDP. The evaluations capture and demonstrate UNDP contributions to development results and related factors, and are carried out within the overall provisions contained in the UNDP Evaluation Policy.
To strengthen methodological quality and consistency of evaluations and standardise evaluation processes, IEO is commissioning background methodology papers in select areas for which it is seeking external consultants. One consultant will be hired for reviewing impact evaluation approaches and methods suitable for UNDP.
