The main purpose of ITC’s evaluation function is to promote learning and accountability. In line with ITC Evaluation Policy and UN evaluation-related standards, guidelines and good practices, the Evaluation Unit aims to provide objective and independent assessments of ITC’s performance regarding to achieving the strategic objectives of ITC.
ITC publishes all ongoing and completed evaluations as well as an Annual synthesis, which extracts commonalities across the different evaluations and identifies the strenghs, weaknesses, opportunities and treats (SWOT) for ITC and its programmes and projects.
ITC is periodically subject to external evaluations. This offers invaluable joint learning and reviewing opportunities, which provides useful strategic insights for ITC moving forward. The last external evaluation of ITC took place in 2015 and was carried out by the Inspection and Evaluation Division of the United Nation’s Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS-IED). The evaluation sought to assess the relevance, effectiveness, and efficiency of ITC in relation to its objectives, and covered the period 2006 to 2014.
