Management’s Implementation of OVE Recommendations: IDB Group’s Evaluation Recommendation Tracking System
This is the Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE)'s third full validation of the IDB Group Evaluation Recommendation Tracking System (ReTS) but the first self-standing report. Assessing whether recommendations have been addressed is essential for institutional accountability and learning. After the IDB Board considers the recommendations of the Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE) and endorses them (95% of 249 recommendations issued by OVE since the ReTs was launched in 2013 have been endorsed), Management prepares an action plan. OVE initially reviews the relevance and evaluability of draft plans, Management updates them and begins implementation, and each year OVE then reviews implementation progress and adoption of the recommendations.
