Ex Post Project Evaluations 2004 Annual Report

Aug 2005
The Bank's Board approved a new Ex Post Policy (EPP) in October 2003, which mandated two new tasks to OVE: the review and validation of Project Completion Reports and the implementation of ex post project evaluations. The scope of this report (RE-308) is limited to the ex post project evaluation task. It's overall purpose is to present the preliminary findings from the first year's experience in implementing EPP. The preliminary findings draw upon three themes: (i) the individual projects evaluated; (ii) the systematic features of the Bank's monitoring and evaluation system; and (iii) evaluative method standards.
