Indicative annual budget for the Independent Evaluation Office, 2018-2021

Planning of the Independent Evaluation Office during 2018, and for the remainder of the multi-year evaluation plan to 2021, is based on budget projections derived from the UNDP integrated resource plan and integrated budget, 2018-2021 (DP/2017/39), presented at the special session of the Executive Board in November 2017. The budget plan establishes a resource envelope for the independent Evaluation Office of $42.1 million for 2018-2021, which, if apportioned equally over four years, provides an annual budget of just over $10.5 million. Subtracting the annual cost of office rental and utilities, approximately $10 million would remain for staff salaries and programme expenditures.
