This page provides an overview of evaluations that were carried out to assess ITC's work from an external perspective.
The Inspection and Evaluation Division of the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS-IED) undertook two separate but related evaluations of trade-oriented United Nations programmes in the 2014-15 biennium: one evaluation of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and another of the International Trade Centre (ITC). Selection of the two entities for evaluation resulted from a 2013 risk assessment by OIOS-IED to identify its evaluation priorities for the 2014-15 biennium.
In 2012, ITC and donors decided on a joint external evaluation of ITC. The rationale for such an evaluation was to follow up on progress made by ITC since 2006, with a view to enhancing ITC’s ability to deliver on its mandate. This critical evaluation was to be viewed as an opportunity to take stock of progress in implementing the recommendations of the 2006 evaluation while also giving direction for the years to come, and identifying any issues that remain to be addressed.
2014 Independent Evaluation Report of ITC
In 2003, the Joint Advisory Group (JAG) of ITC endorsed a Danish proposal to undertake a joint evaluation of the organization. The Evaluation used four interconnected modalities for analysis: an evaluation of ITC performance and comparative advantage at the field level; an evaluation of ITC products and technical competencies; an organisational evaluation, with studies on corporate performance; and an assessment of the global context for trade and development.
