dc.description.abstract<p>The present report provides an assessment of the state of evaluation across 31 United Nations entities during the biennium 2016&ndash;2017 in terms of evaluation functions, resources and practice. The report also presents an analysis of a sample of high-quality evaluations across elements of organizational performance and proposes the evaluation workplan of the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) for 2020-2021.</p> <p>As compared with the previous period, entities made modest improvements to evaluation functions in terms of their organizational independence and outputs, including an increase in the overall number and quality of evaluation reports.</p> <p>However, shortfalls in evaluation capacity persisted. Only six entities met the minimum organizational benchmark for evaluation expenditure, and estimated spending on evaluation was broadly below budgeted allocations, as was also observed in the previous biennium. In addition, evaluation reports fell below system-wide standards regarding the integration of gender and human rights issues.</p> <p>At the entity level, there was an observable divergence between the entities that have further consolidated evaluation capacity and those that have not improved or that have fallen further behind. The Secretary-General&rsquo;s commitment to strengthening the culture of accountability and evaluation by establishing the Department of Management Strategy, Policy and Compliance &ndash; notably its Evaluation Section &ndash; presents a strong opportunity to address common challenges to help to close that gap.</p> Please click <A href="">here</a> to download the full-text report on the Official Document System (ODS).
