Evaluation Plan

Ensuring effectiveness, further raising the level of quality, complying with reporting requirements and verifying successful program implementations: These are the aims of the evaluation plan for the OP EFRE NRW 2014-2020. The plan details how the effectiveness and efficiency of the structural funds are to be assessed. The focus is on analysing and evaluating the results of funding.

The evaluation plan of the OP EFRE NRW 2014-2020 details: the framework for program-accompanying assessments, specific valuation objects and the content of future evaluations. It also highlights suitable methods and describes the procedure of evaluation.

The administrative authority follows an evaluation strategy which continually monitors the implementation of the program in a standardized manner. Additionally, further evaluations examine particular focal points of the program.

The following questions need to be clarified, among others:

  • Which effects can be observed in the funded projects?
  • How much did the funding contribute to the observed results?
  • In what way did the funding contribute to the observed results?
  • How efficient was the funding with regard to the results?
  • Which improvements can be made in the future, either regarding the content, organization or structure?
