Traditional evaluation criteria (relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability) will apply with an emphasis on results and on the joint programming process. Specific evaluation criteria will include:
Effectiveness of the Joint Programme in achieving desired results, and in particular with respect to a) immediate and visible contribution to peacebuilding; b) contribution to strengthening national capacities and ownership; c) strengthening partnerships between all relevant stakeholders;
The efficiency of the Joint Programme in reducing transaction costs for government and participating UN organizations involved in the programme, and in enhancing overall efficiency in use of resources and implementation;

Effectiveness of management and coordination arrangements in terms of the delineation of responsibilities and coordination for production of results, and the ability of the IPMS to operate as a single integrated entity.
The Joint Programme will produce one consolidated report on project implementation every six months. The Human Rights and Justice IPMS will be responsible for consolidating all narrative and financial reports.. A common format for reporting will be used that will be common to all BINUB Joint Programmes. All reports will be shared with all relevant stakeholders through the Joint Programme Steering Committee.
