The Group Operations Evaluation (GOE) Department is an independent and specialized body with the prime responsibility to plan, design and conduct the evaluation of the operations funded by the IDB Group in line with internationally recognized evaluation principles.
The GOE Department’s task is to contribute to transforming the IDB Group into a world class learning organization that continuously improves its operations by drawing lessons from the evaluation findings to enhance the development effectiveness of the Group’s interventions. The department strives to participate in the realization of the IDB Group’s overarching objectives as envisaged in the IDB Group ‘1440H Vision’ by promoting accountability, integrity, transparency and knowledge-sharing.
The GOE Department products are guided by a set of principles, including responsiveness to institutional needs; production of reports that generate lessons and recommendations which are useful, ethical, relevant; and compliance with International Good Practice Standards.
Evaluations conducted by the department provide sound assessment of the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, output, outcome and impact of the IDB Group’s interventions, and sustainability of the development results achieved.
