The role of evaluation in Mexico : achievements, challenges, and opportunities (English)

Traditionally, evaluation of public expenditure has focused on the size and composition of public expenditure, rather than on its quality. However, evaluation can enhance the quality of public expenditure by identifying approaches that yield best results and can be replicated or scaled up. In the context of performance-informed budgeting, planning agencies, line ministries, and groups outside government, such as the congress and civil society, can use information on program outcomes generated by evaluations. This note summarizes Mexico's experience in institutionalizing and using evaluation as a tool for learning and accountability and in strengthening the role of evaluation in the framework of performance-informed budgeting.
