Building better policies : the nuts and bolts of monitoring and evaluation systems by Gladys Lopez Acevedo( )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Governments around the world face ongoing pressures from citizens to provide more and better services, and to do this while restraining taxation levels. This provides the context for government efforts to ensure their policies and programs are as effective, and as efficient, as possible. An emphasis on government performance has led a number of governments to create formal systems for monitoring and evaluating their performance--on a regular, planned, and systematic basis--with the objective of improving it. The focus of this book is on these government monitoring and evaluation (M and E) systems: what they comprise, how they are built and managed, and how they can be used to improve government performance.--Résumé de l'éditeur
How to build M & E systems to support better government by Keith Robin Mackay( )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A growing number of governments are working to improve their performance by creating systems to measure and help them understand their performance. These systems for monitoring and evaluation (M&E) are used to measure the quantity, quality, and targeting of the goods and services--the outputs--that the state provides and to measure the outcomes and impacts resulting from these outputs. These systems are also a vehicle to facilitate understanding of the causes of good and poor performance

The Performance Framework of the Australian Government, 1987 to 2011 by Keith Mackay( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article analyses the performance frameworks adopted by successive Australian governments since 1987. One highlight was a formal evaluation strategy managed by the Department of Finance to support high-quality policy advice and budget decision making. The replacement of this strategy by a decentralised system of performance indicators is also discussed, together with the quality of government decision making. Lessons for other countries are also highlighted

The Australian Goverrnment's M&E System by Keith Mackay( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Countries from all over the world have shown an interest in Australia's experience in creating a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system that supports evidence-based decision making and performance-based budgeting. The Australian M and E system in existence from 1987-97 was generally considered to be one of the most successful and was driven by the federal Department of Finance (DoF). This note discusses the genesis, characteristics, and success of this particular system and briefly considers the Australian government's approach to M and E after the system was abolished. The contrast between these two periods provides many valuable insights into success factors and challenges facing successful M and E systems, and into implementing evidence-based decision making more broadly

Institutionalizing M&E systems in Latin American and Caribbean Countries by Ruxandra Burdescu( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Countries are driving the efforts to institutionalize monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems. Through the promotion of knowledge-sharing, and by taking stock of current M&E systems, fostering South-South collaboration, raising awareness through presentations, and, by launching an informal regional network, the note reviews the cases of Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Mexico and Peru. It became evident from country experiences, that there is no single "destination" for countries. Some stress a system of performance indicators, while others focus on conducting evaluations (program reviews or rigorous impact evaluation (IE). And while some countries have created a whole of government approach driven by finance, or planning ministries, others are more focused on sector M&E systems. One key characteristic of most of the systems that are now at different stages of implementation in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is that they are country-led efforts to institutionalize M&E, rather than donor-driven

Comment mettre en place des systemes de S et E pour appuyer une meilleure gestion des affaires publiques by Keith Robin Mackay( )

2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les gouvernements d'un certain nombre de pays en developpement consacrent des efforts considerables au renforcement de leurs capacites et de leurs systemes de suivi et d'evaluation (S et E). Ils comptent ainsi obtenir de meilleurs resultats ? en se donnant les moyens d'elaborer des politiques, de faire des choix budgetaires et de rendre des comptes qui soient systematiquement fondes sur des donnees probantes. Le Groupe independant d'evaluation (IEG) de la Banque mondiale a acquis une experience considerable dans ce domaine grace a un programme de recherche et d'assistance technique qui analyse les actions menees a cet egard dans un large eventail de pays et de contextes publics. Les publications de l'IEG sur ce theme apportent des informations sur les systemes nationaux de S et E qui refletent de bonnes pratiques ou laissent entrevoir des possibilites interessantes. Elles contiennent egalement des guides analytiques, des diagnostics sur certains pays, des exemples d'evaluations ayant eu un large impact, et des supports didactiques sur les instruments de suivi et d'evaluation et l'analyse d'impact, entre autres. L'objet du present rapport est de mettre cet ensemble de connaissances a la disposition du lecteur sous une forme synthetique et condensee. Ce volume met en lumiere les lecons qui se degagent de la mise en place d'un systeme public operationnel de S et E dans plusieurs pays, notamment au Chili, en Colombie et en Australie. Le cas special de l'Afrique, penalisee a de nombreux egards par de graves contraintes de capacites, est egalement examine. Le rapport presente les moyens a mettre en ouvre pour renforcer le systeme public de S et E et susciter une demande plus forte au sein de l'administration pour les activites de S et E, et il fait ressortir a quel point il importe d'etablir un diagnostic de la situation nationale et d'elaborer un plan d'action
Conceptual Framework for Monitoring and Evaluation by Keith Mackay( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first note in a monthly series on government monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems led by the PREM, or Poverty Reduction and Equity Management under the guidance of Jaime Saavedra, Gladys Lopez-Acevedo, and Keith Mackay, with contributions from several World Bank colleagues. The main purpose of this series is to synthesize existing knowledge about M&E systems and to document new knowledge on M&E systems that may not yet be well understood. The series targets World Bank other donor staff who are working to support client governments in strengthening their M&E systems, as well as government officials interested in learning about the uses and benefits of M&E and in adopting a more systematic approach toward M&E in their governments
