Scope and content
This sub-series contains the working files of the Directors, Operations Evaluation Department (OEDDR), relating to the drafting of the 1st - 16th (1975 - 1990), and 18th - 20th (1992 - 1994) Annual Review of Evaluation Results (ARER). The content of these files varies somewhat but a typical file contains: correspondence among the OED division chiefs and among members of the Annual Review team regarding the format and content of the Review; OEDDR's correspondence with other Bank units requesting their inputfor the Review; a draft of the Review; comments on the draft from the Director-General (DGO), OED staff, and other Bank officials; OED replies to the comments; copies of the comments the DGO made to the Executive Directors at the Board meeting at which the Review was discussed; minutes of meetings of the Joint Audit Committee at which the Review was discussed; and summaries of discussions of the Review at meetings of the Joint Audit Committee and of the Executive Directors.
Filed at the beginning of the sub-series are notes of a December 1982 meeting held to discuss the publishing of OED impact evaluation reports and edited versions of the Annual Reviews for readers outside the Bank. A copy of an article from Consulting Engineer, September 1978, discussing the first Annual Review and the organization of OED is found in the file for the third Annual Review.
