This summary was developed within the project ”Promoting transparency and financial sustainability of regional policies, state-owned enterprises and local authorities in Moldova”. The initiative is being implemented by the Institute for Development and Social Initiatives (IDIS) “Viitorul”, in partnership with the Institute for Economic and Social Reforms in Slovakia (INEKO), with the financial support of the Official Development Assistance of the Slovak Republic (SlovakAid). The initiative aims to increase the transparency, financial accountability and quality of regional policies, state-owned enterprises and local authorities in Moldova.
The policies included in the summary were identified, analyzed and appreciated with the support of a Board of Independent Evaluators selected by the Institute for Development and Social Initiatives (IDIS) "Viitorul" on the basis of their administrative and research experience and who perform their activity in regional public authorities, development agencies, business, think tanks, mass - media and academia. Thus, the evaluators were invited to asses a series of social and economic local decisions and policies (regulations, privatization decisions, strategy papers, public policy concepts) proposed or adopted by local authorities in their field of attributions recognized by the law.
The evaluation methodology has been prepared by IDIS “Viitorul” and INEKO, with the financial support of the SlovakAid.
Thus, experts of the Evaluation Board have analyzed policies for local economic and social development based on two criteria: (1) quality - their acceptability and (2) their importance to society and local actors. The measurement included the estimation of the effects of these policies and local decisions on the sustainable development and well-being of the communities in which they occurred, the multiplier effects.
The measure of quality measurement included variable values from full disapproval to neutral assessment (0) to full approval [-3; +3]. Experts also assessed the impact of the measure on society and the economy, using a percentage scale [0%; 100%], noting with this indicator the degree of relevance of measurement for the local community and society as a whole.
The final scores were calculated on the basis of the average value obtained from the quality of the measure (policy) multiplied by the coefficient expressing the average value of the measure significance for the local society and the economy. The final score of the assessed measures will range from [-300; 300]. According to the methodology used, all measures can be represented on a map of relative intensities, thus indicating the contribution of experts to evaluate these measures on social and economic development.
