EVALUATION OF

STRUCTURAL FUNDS (2000-2006)

Set out in Regulation 1260/1999 on General Provisions on the Structural Funds:

  • Ex Ante Evaluation (Art. 41)

  • Mid Term Evaluation (Art. 42)

  • Ex Post Evaluation (Art. 43)

    Also important:

  • Quantification (Art. 36)

  • Cost Benefit Analysis - Major Projects (Art. 26)

  • Performance Reserve (Art. 44)


Evaluation capacity building

EVALUATION CAPACITY BUILDING

  • Objective – the capacity to produce high quality evaluations for learning (how to achieve greater impact) and accountability (what have we achieved with public money)

  • Evaluation as a management tool

  • Linkage to the monitoring system

  • Challenges

    • Having a mandate and an Evaluation Plan – clarity of role

    • Appropriate numbers of qualified staff

    • Institutionalising evaluation

Structural funds evaluation a view from the european commission

EX ANTE EVALUATION – ROLE & AIMS

  • Serves as a basis for preparing Plans and Programmes

  • Provides the rationale for the intervention and financial allocations across priorities

  • Evaluates anticipated socio-economic results and impacts

  • Assesses the quality of implementation, monitoring and evaluation arrangements


Structural funds evaluation a view from the european commission

EX ANTE EVALUATION -

ORGANISATION

  • Responsibility of those preparing Plans and Programmes

  • Should be an interactive process

  • Working Paper of the Commission (No. 2) – to be updated for 2007-2013 period


Structural funds evaluation a view from the european commission

MID TERM EVALUATION -

ROLE AND AIMS

  • To improve the quality and relevance of programming through

    • examination of any changes in the programme environment and programme performance to date, and

    • making any necessary changes required to maximise the impact of the programme

  • For 2007-2013, mid term evaluation will become ongoing evaluation

The Mid Term Evaluation Update - 2005

  • For current Member States - an update – not full review of strategy, themes, etc.

  • New Member States to be involved also

  • Focus on Outputs, Results, Impacts

  • Opportunity to include some evaluation questions on issues arising in the programme, if necessary

  • Preparation for ex ante evaluation 2006 and ex post evaluation 2009Draft working paper for discussion in June


Structural funds evaluation a view from the european commission

EX POST EVALUATION –

ROLE & AIMS

To establish:

  • Effectiveness, efficiency and impact in relation to economic and social cohesion

  • Factors contributing to the success or failure of implementation and the achievements and results, including sustainability

    (1999 Regulation – for ex post to be carried out by end 2009)


Structural funds evaluation a view from the european commission

EX POST EVALUATION -

CHALLENGES FOR CURRENT PERIOD

  • To be complete by end of 2009 – but expenditure continues to end 2008.

  • Evaluations across 25 very diverse Member States

  • How to involve the Member States

  • One contract per Objective? (not required in the regulation)


Ex post evaluation current thinking

EX POST EVALUATION – CURRENT THINKING

  • Link update of Mid Term Evaluation to requirements of Ex Post

  • Work with Member States from 2005 onwards

  • Split contracts into thematic areas

    Draft working paper for discussion later in 2004


Ongoing evaluation the evaluation plan

Ongoing Evaluation – the Evaluation Plan

  • Current thinking – to replace mid term evaluation in 2007-2013

  • Evaluation Plan – to be agreed by Monitoring Committee and be adapted to needs – reviewed each year

  • Plan should include organisation (who is responsible), resources (human + financial) and draft list of evaluation projects

  • For 2004-2006, one or two evaluations each year, focused on systems issues, themes or measures

  • 2005 – start ex ante evaluation process
