PROGRAM EVALUATION/ PUBLIC POLICIES ASSESSMENT BY THE FRENCH COUR DES COMPTES
Languages of publication
The reform of the French Constitution of 23 July 2008 imposed an additional duty on the Cour des comptes: to assist the Parliament and the Government in evaluating the effectiveness of public policy in various areas. Having been ordered by the authorised bodies, the Cour des comptes is obliged to elaborate an evaluation and submit a report on this evaluation within twelve months at the latest. In 2011, the French Cour des comptes received two orders, and additionally it conducted three evaluations on its own initiative. They were related to the functioning of medical services at schools, curbing homelessness, support of the state for life insurance policies, state aid in the field of biofuels, and the relations between the tax administration and taxpayers. In his article, the author presents the results of these evaluations, and discusses the nature of an evaluation as such.
