Tier 3

Tier 3 of the IDA19 RMS includes measures of both the operational and organizational effectiveness of IDA. This includes indicators tracking the performance of IDA’s portfolio, the quality and timeliness of projects delivered to clients, the results orientation of the operations, client and beneficiary feedback, financial sustainability, and the implementation of the five IDA Special Themes. There are 26 indicators organized under five categories: (1) development outcome ratings: (2) performance and quality; (3) operational efficiency and responsiveness; (4) financial sustainability and budget efficiency; and (5) implementation of IDA special themes and cross-cutting issues.

DEVELOPMENT OUTCOME RATINGS

Satisfactory outcomes of IDA operations, as share of commitments %

Share of IDA operations and IDA commitments rated by the IEG as “moderately satisfactory” or higher on achievement of outcomes. Data are for projects exiting in the three previous fiscal years for which at least 60% of the projects for each fiscal year have been evaluated by IEG. The rating captures the extent to which a project’s original or formally revised development objectives were achieved.

The rating is based on three criteria:

(i) relevance of the objectives and design (relevance);

(ii) extent to which the objectives were achieved (efficacy); and

(iii) extent to which the operation achieves a higher rate of return than the opportunity cost of capital, or is able to provide a similar economic justification (efficiency).

Proactivity Index (%)

The ratio of projects in “actual” problem status 12 months ago that have had a proactivity action in the last 12 months divided by the total number of problem projects from 12 months ago. After being downgraded to MU or lower for DO and/or IP, a project needs to have one of the following actions taken within the next 12 months, otherwise, it will be considered a proactivity problem. The actions are upgrade, close, cancel >=20%, suspend, or restructuring (both level 1 and level 2) (note: restructurings for extensions of closing dates or reallocations are not counted as proactivity actions unless they are combined with other actions). Data of IDA-funded operations is reported.

Mean score for the answer provided by World Bank Group clients in IDA countries to the following questions from the annual WBG Country Opinion Survey (COS) Program: “To what extent is the World Bank Group an effective development partner in your country, in terms of (a) responsiveness to needs, and (b) staff accessibility?” (based on a 10-point scale with 1 being “to no degree at all”, and 10 being “to a very significant degree”).  World Bank Group clients in IDA countries are defined as respondents who report in the Country Opinion Survey that they collaborate with the World Bank (IDA).  The indicator reflects the current fiscal year ratings (FY 2021), i.e. for one-third of all WBG client countries surveyed during each three-year cycle. Data is reported for IDA eligible countries, including blend countries, in a reporting fiscal year.
