In order to promote a greater efficiency in the use of public resources and foster transparency and accountability, the Mexican Government has launched a series of initiatives to strengthen the monitoring and evaluation of public programs among which are the General Guidelines for the Evaluation of Federal Programs of the Federal Public Administration published by the National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (CONEVAL), in coordination with the Ministries of Finance(SHCP) and of Public Administration (SFP).
Within this context, CONEVAL is interested in analyzing and evaluating externally and independently the experience of implementing said guidelines, with the purpose of providing feedback and establishing an ongoing improvement of the new monitoring and evaluation scheme for public policies and programs, mainly those linked to the social sector, as well as to promote a better coordination between the different parties involved.
Given the above, the World Bank analyzed the initial implementation of the General Guidelines for the Evaluation of Federal Programs of the Federal Public Administration and based on its results, to improve future implementation strategies. The analysis is based on interviews with key parties responsible for the development and implementation of the Guidelines such as the Ministry of Treasure (SHCP), the Ministry of Public Function (SFP), the CONEVAL, the evaluation units, and external evaluators, among others, and on the revision of the valid regulation in matters of evaluation of public programs and policy.
