The IMF’s Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) is requesting input on topics for its future evaluations (see Bretton Woods Project Spring Meeting coverage April 2017 and Observer Winter 2015). The IEO develops its work programme on the basis of broad-based internal and external consultations and requests those interested to send proposals, which will be considered in the planning of its upcoming evaluation reports. All comments and suggestions received will be posted on the IEO’s website. It is also possible to send comments or suggestions on completed or ongoing evaluations. You can submit comments on this online form, or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
