Description

What is the public
problem that the
commitment will
address?
The Consultation and the engagement of citizens in the processes of public
policies ‘evaluation
What does the
commitment consist of ?
-Spur parliamentary groups and members of the parliament to propose topics
of programmes and public policies‘ evaluations, the latter target a population
which can be identified, and, therefore, consulted with by the taskforce in
charge of conducting the evaluation, both upstream as well as downstream, in
accordance with the referential framework set up for the evaluation of public policies.
- Spur the steering committee of the taskforce in charge of conducting the
evaluation decided by the bureau of the House of Representatives to opt for
evaluation criteria while taking into consideration the degree of impact of the
public policies on citizens’ lives.
These two criteria, which require field research, are up to making every
evaluation initiative an opportunity to communicate and allow for the
participation of a maximum number of beneficiaries and of the counterfactual
population of the programme, which is, indeed, the subject of the evaluation.
Such an association can be inscribed within the phase of the evaluation
preparation and that of the formulation of the conclusions together with the
recommendations.
-Invite the group in charge of the evaluation to ensure a good communication
with the ultimate target groups and beneficiaries in order to better define both
their needs and aspirations.
A synthesis of this communication shall be attached to the evaluation report.

To guarantee a better profitability of the evaluation project, a large
dissemination of the evaluation reports is a must. The follow up by the
political authorities of the House of Representatives is fundamental for the
improvement and the productivity of the public policies.
In terms of accountability, the conclusions of the evaluation reports can serve
as a basis for the evaluation of public interventions and their impact on the
population.
How shall the
commitment contribute
to solving the public
problem?
The House of Representatives has put into place a referential framework for
the evaluation of public policies, which acts as a guiding tool when it comes
to the management of the evaluation activities. While indicating the
procedure to follow throughout the whole process, from the very selection of
the topic to the elaboration of the final report. This guide, as well as, the bylaws of the House of Representatives, do give a prominent position to the
research techniques that spur the contribution of the stakeholders of the policy
or of the programme, which is subject to evaluation, namely the public
authorities all along with the entities in charge of the implementation of the
concerned public policies, and most particularly, the ultimate target groups
and beneficiaries.
Why is this commitment
relevant to OGP values?
The evaluation of the public policies is one of the new prerogatives of the
parliament of Morocco, which has been upgraded and fostered to the position
of parliamentary function, as stipulated by the new 2011 Constitution. The
House of Representatives has, from the very beginning, set its sight on the
serious and certain launch of this new function. First of all, through avoiding
the conceptual confusions with the related streams of work of the Parliament,
and secondly through ensuring its institutionalization which clearly
distinguishes the political from the scientific, in its practical exercise and in
terms of the credibility of these end products.
