Approach Paper: Evaluability Review of Bank Projects 2011

Sep 2011
Given the contributions of the Development Effectiveness Matrix (DEM) and the self-evaluation system of evaluability, OVE can now move away from a wholly separate system of reviewing project evaluability (as was done in 2001, 2005, and 2009). OVE can move towards a system of continuous validation, on a sample basis, of DEM scores produced by Management. The initial exercise outlined in this approach paper aims at piloting an approach to such validation while also establishing a baseline measure of how projects are performing according to the new criteria. OVE will also use this first report as an opportunity to review the DEM criteria.
