Quality Assessment of UN Evaluation Reports

2011: Urs Zollinger was engaged by the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) to conduct a quality assessment of evaluation reports from across the United Nations.

The purpose was to assess the quality of selected evaluation reports completed by the UN Secretariat departments during 2008-2009. 45 reports were assessed along 27 quality criteria. The assessment included reports from DPKO, DESA, UNCTAD, UNEP, UNHCR, UNRWA, the UN Regional Commissions and other entities. The findings of the assessment were included in a report to the UN General Assembly (A/66/71). Contact: Urs Zollinger
