AusAID Bilateral Donor System Country Program Evaluations included in Performance Management and Evaluation Policy (PMEP) of the Agency Part of Tier 2 of Agency Results Framework Three identified components to ‘purpose’ – management, learning and accountability Builds on and tests self assessed Annual Program Performance Reports (APPR)
AusAID CPE Methodology Evaluates three elements of the strategic architecture – Country Situation Analysis – analysis and policies to inform the ODA approach Country Strategy – a public statement of the ODA approach Delivery Strategies – how AusAID will deliver aid in each sector or priority area
AusAID CPE Methodology Evaluative Criteria – Selectivity and focus – has a clear and informed allocation rationale Represent whole-of-government interests – means the interests of various Australian Government departments delivering ODA Effectively managed – is strategic in nature, takes risks into due consideration and deploys resources efficiently Produce results – refers to the outputs, outcomes and impacts (intended or unintended) of the cooperation program
Methodological Challenges Explicit versus implicit – strategy acknowledged as only a small part of what the program does Operational approach entails much wider scale of ways of working – understanding the link between the two is difficult Avoiding retrospective strategies – does the strategy drive the program or the program drive the strategy? Enough structure while not restricting innovation in approach
Choosing CPEs Office for Development Effectiveness (ODE) responsible for CPEs -Work plan decided by Independent Evaluation Committee (3 outside members 1 internal) -Largely driven by current internal performance and policy priorities – Health Checks prepared by Operations to inform choices (set of broad-based program metrics) -Very few CPEs in last 5 years – huge political opposition internally and little clarity without significant work on strategies themselves -No mandatory requirement, but have returned to favor given political pressures on spend
