D. OE Effectiveness and methodology • Continue the application of the evaluation manual, and internal OE peer review activities. • Implement the recommendations of the external peer review of OE.
2010 Resource issues • Same levels of human resources as in 2009. • Around 2.3% real decrease in 2010 budget. • After mandatory increases over which OE has no control (inflation factor, and staff cost), OE’s budget proposal for 2010 is around USD 5.9 million (0.74% of IFAD programme of work for 2010 – down from 0.88% in 2009). • In addition, the EB in September decided that OE should include a one time below the line allocation of USD 50 000 for the completion of the external peer review of OE and IFAD’s evaluation function.
2010 OE revised Evaluation Budget (US$) Note: OE has just been informed by FS that the final exchange rate of USD at 0.722 will be used by IFAD for requesting the 2010 budget. At this new exchange rate, the staff cost will be USD 3 620 204 for the same level of human resources required for 2010), bringing OE’s total proposed budget to USD 6 220 204.
Next Steps • The OE WPB will be discussed at the Audit Committee in November. • Finally, the OE WPB will be submitted to the EB in December for approval.
OE Human Resources Note: OE also benefits from the services of 1 APO from Germany.
