Monitoring and Evaluation of ROP

Evaluation of ROP is an activity inseparable from the overall ROP management and implementation arrangements. It is a tool for assessing the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness of the financial assistance deployed, as well as the impact and sustainability of the results achieved. In accordance with al relevant national and EC Regulations, three main types of evaluations are carried out for the ROP, namely the ex-ante evaluation (that has already been conducted in order to prepare the programme), the ongoing evaluation (during the implementation of the ROP) and the ex-post evaluation (after the ROP has been concluded).
The ROP Managing Authority is the coordinator of the evaluation process.

The ROP Monitoring Committee (ROP MC) has a primary role in the monitoring of operations of the ROP.
