image of Joint Assessment of the Institutional Effectiveness of UNDP

Recognizing that institutional effectiveness is important to both UNDP’s audit and evaluation functions, the Directors of IEO and Office of Audit and Investigations (OAI) undertook the Assessment of UNDP’s Institutional Effectiveness jointly, using both audit and evaluation methods. The UNDP Evaluation Policy and OAI Charter share the same purpose of supporting UNDP through oversight, review of governance, risk management practices and institutional learning. This Assessment report encompasses the joint findings and conclusions of the two offices for presentation to the Executive Board in 2017. The objective of this evaluation is to assess the extent to which policy and organizational measures, including the associated restructuring process, have enhanced or have the potential to enhance UNDP’s ability to deliver higher quality programmes and UNDP’s institutional effectiveness.

Executive summary

The Independent Evaluation Office and Office of Audit and Investigations of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) jointly conducted an assessment of the institutional effectiveness of UNDP to assess the extent to which policy and organizational measures, including the associated restructuring process, have enhanced or have the potential to enhance the organization’s ability to deliver higher-quality programmes and improve institutional effectiveness. The scope of the assessment covered relevant activities undertaken by UNDP during the period 2010-2015, with particular emphasis on the initiatives undertaken in support of the Strategic Plan, 2014-2017, including the associated restructuring process and measures, all of which aim at supporting country offices in delivering higher-quality programmes, which was the key focus of the assessment. Considering the early stage of implementation of UNDP reforms, the assessment recognizes that it may be too soon to fully identify all of the results and therefore aims to contribute to enhancing organizational learning by identifying opportunities for improvement
