for support of México Evalúa’s public expenditure program
México Evalúa is a policy research center founded in early 2009 with the mission of evaluating public policy outcomes as they pertain to economic development priorities in Mexico. This grant would allow México Evalúa to consolidate work on improving government practices of evaluation and expenditure monitoring, as well as accountability to elevate the quality of public services. The objective of this program is to generate evidence and analysis to trigger institutional and operational changes so that public expenditure translates into the public’s well-being. In particular, this grant would allow México Evalúa to strengthen the independent evaluation and monitoring of public finances and to keep open channels with decision makers and other organizations that work on improving the efficiency of public expenditure and government accountability in Mexico. It would also allow the organization to strengthen its work on public expenditures in two areas: transparency and accountability in the judiciary, and monitoring and evaluation exercises of government performance.
