The Evaluation Information System (EIS)
is a web-based central evaluation database that captures the findings and lessons of all on-going,
ex-post and impact evaluations
of the development interventions implemented with domestic and aid funds. The EIS forms part of the National Operations Room (NOR) of the Ministry of Finance and Planning. The objective of the EIS is to ensure more effective
feedback of evaluation findings and lessons into the planning, budgeting and policy formulation process. The evaluation information helps Planners and Policy Makers to learn from the past and to improve the design of future programs.
The EIS captures project- wise
• basic evaluation data
• key issues
• overall assessment
• lessons learned and
• follow-up actions and recommendations
The evaluation information helps to address
what works? What does not and why?
and in what context it works? Hence, It is a powerful information for the development planning.
The information in the EIS are organized on a
project-wise basis and synthesized on sector–wise
with high level abstraction to provide more effective feedback to the Policy Makers. The effectiveness of evaluation depends on its wider usage
