At the request of the Dirección de Presupuestos (DIPRES) of the Government of Chile, the World Bank conducted a review of the government’s evaluation system, which has been in place since 1997. As part of this broader study, Universalia carried out a meta-evaluation of a small sample of the government’s program evaluations, known as Evaluaciones de Programas Gubernamentales. The overall objective of the meta-evaluation was to assess the quality of a random sample of 15 EPGs conducted in 2002 and 2003. The assessment applied a set of clear criteria and sub-criteria that drew on generic standards for program evaluation, and identified the extent to which the evaluations conform to the methodological approaches defined by the EPG guidelines. This evaluation was conducted in Spanish.
