The evaluation process does not end with the final evaluation report. In the light of the evaluation
recommendations, Programme/Project Managers discuss and liaise with relevant parties, including senior management,
other UNODC sections, donors, etc. and prepare a Management Response (MR). The MR is included in a table in the final evaluation
report, indicating whether each recommendation is accepted/partially accepted or rejected, together with action to be taken
to implement. For an IDE, a written narrative (approximately 1–2 pages) is further added to the final report.
Managers are also responsible for the development of an Evaluation Follow-up
Plan (EFP) on the implementation of the evaluation recommendations. The EFP is prepared in the on-line evaluation management
application Unite Evaluations and is reviewed
and cleared by IES. See Guidance
for the drafting and monitoring of the Follow-up Plan. The Manager is required to update the Follow-up
Plan once a year. IES further reports on the implementation of recommendations to the Executive Director and Member States
on an annual basis.
The evaluation report is further disseminated by Programme/Project Manager for
learning and improved UNODC programming. IES shares evaluation results with Member States and UNODC's Executive Director,
as well as publishes Evaluation Reports and Evaluation Briefs on its website. All UNODC Evaluation Reports further undergo
an external quality assessment (Evaluation
Quality Assessment Template). See the Evaluation
Quality Assessment Report 2019 and the 2-page Summary.
