The five-year Global Research Project, Strengthening Institutions to Improve Public Expenditure Accountability, implemented in technical partnership with the Results for Development Institute (R4D), aimed at building the capacity of 14 participating developing country organizations to monitor and analyze public expenditure choices and processes, and to engage constructively with policy officials on various policy options in the three sectors of health, education and water. The project’s ultimate goal was more capable, accountable, and responsive governments in the countries where the project operated. It had an integrated independent monitoring and evaluation component which was undertaken by the National Opinion Research Centre, University of Chicago.
