National evaluation policy in Malaysia

Also Available In: Español

This case study, prepared by Katerina Stolyarenko for the Parliamentary Forum for Development Evaluation outlines the process that was used to develop and implement a government-wide monitoring and evaluation system in Malaysia.


"In 2009, the government adopted the Integrated Results Based Management (IRBM) system commencing with the 10th Malaysia Plan 2011-2015. In 2011, the government decided to replace MBS with Outcome Based Budgeting (OBB). Evaluation was integrated as a key factor into the performance planning for the public sector."
