United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) Evaluation competency framework

This resource presents the revised evaluation competencies for the United Nations system, highlighting their importance for evaluators, evaluation unit heads, commissioners, and users.


"Efforts have been made to simplify the evaluation competencies, while ensuring that they remain sufficiently specific so that they can be clearly applied within the United Nations system. This document provides potential usages of the competencies (with annexed examples for reference) and common and specific competencies for evaluators, evaluation unit heads and commissioners of evaluation. The competencies are intended to ensure that United Nations agencies have skilled evaluation staff who are able to conduct or manage high-quality evaluations, particularly those concerned with progress made on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)."
