Institutional and Organizational Performance Assessment

Universalia was commissioned in early 2009 to undertake the first-time evaluation of a joint organizational strategy (JOS) for UNHCR in which Canada, Denmark and the United Kingdom came together in 2007 to develop a common framework in which to situate their assistance to UNHCR. The assignment was designed to feed into the renewal and redesign of the JOS. Key issues in the strategy and the evaluation related to the efficiency and effectiveness of joint versus bilateral support strategies. The main purposes of the evaluation were: a) to determine the extent to which the JOS has delivered the objectives and desired impact outlined in this strategy and; b) review the harmonized approach taken to this strategy and share lessons-learned about the strengths and weaknesses of the approach.
