International Monetary Fund. Independent Evaluation Office

Abstract

Since May 2016, the IEO has completed two evaluations—The IMF and the Crises in Greece, Ireland, and Portugal and The IMF and Social Protection—and one evaluation update—Multilateral Surveillance: Revisiting the 2006 IEO Evaluation. The IEO has also launched three new evaluations—which will analyze the Fund’s role on fragile states, its financial surveillance activities, and its advice on unconventional monetary policies—and two evaluation updates—which will look into the Fund’s exchange rate policy advice and structural conditionality. In addition, outside its regular work program, the IEO has published two books: The International Monetary Fund and the Learning Organization: The Role of Independent Evaluation (Schwartz and Rist, 2016) and Background Papers for the IMF and the Crises in Greece, Ireland, and Portugal (Schwartz and Takagi, 2017).

Abstract

Effective follow-up is critical to ensuring that the IMF gets the full benefits of IEO evaluations. The focus is placed on the implementation of evaluation recommendations approved by the Executive Board, as laid out in a Management Implementation Plan (MIP).
