Abstract

This Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) Annual Report 2012 presents an overview of overall developments in FY2012. In FY2012, the IEO expended approximately 97 percent of its total budgetary resources, including the approved budget amount and the resources carried forward from FY2011 as authorized. Vacancies amounted to about one and one-half staff years over the course of the financial year. This level of vacancies is within the range of what could be expected in a small organization with structural difficulties in recruitment and retention.

During financial year 2012, the IMF Executive Board discussed the IEO evaluation of Research at the IMF: Relevance and Utilization.

This paper presents proposals for the FY2008–FY2010 medium-term budget (MTB) and seeks Board approval for the proposed FY2008 annual net administrative budget. The paper also presents the FY2008–FY2010 medium-term capital plan and seeks approval for expenditures on new capital projects beginning in FY2008. The impact of the proposed administrative and capital budgets on the Fund’s administrative expenses (as classified in the Fund’s financial statements), and hence on the Fund’s net income over the next three years, is identified.

/ Includes the contingency and central reserves for FY2008; and the planning reserves for both FY2009 and FY2010. Within a declining real administrative resource envelope, the FY2008 budget reallocates resources from back office activities to work on KOAs. In practice, this implies shifting dollar resources—in relative terms—from support departments to area and functional departments.
