ABOUT THE CRF

The Corporate Results Framework (CRF) is the keystone within the Inter­-American Development Bank Group’s (IDBG) managing for development results (MfDR) architecture. The CRF serves as the primary tool for monitoring and measuring the IDBG’s performance and the achievement of its strategic objectives during the 2016-2019 period.

What does the CRF measure?

The CRF 2016-2019 monitors the Update to the Institutional Strategy (UIS) and captures the work of the entire IDB Group (which includes the Inter-American Development Bank, Multilateral Investment Fund and Inter-American Investment Corporation). Regional Context and Country Development Results indicators are associated with one or more of IDBG’s strategic priorities, which include three challenges: (1) Social inclusion and equality; (2) Productivity and innovation; and (3) Economic integration; and three cross-cutting themes: (1) Climate change and environmental sustainability; (2) Gender equality and diversity; and, (3) Institutional capacity and rule of law. IDBG Performance indicators are organized around the six UIS operational guiding principles: i) Responsiveness; ii) Multi-sectorality; iii) Effectiveness and efficiency; iv) Leverage and partnerships; v) Innovation and knowledge; and vi) Strategic alignment. More information about the CRF 2016-2019 can be found in this brochure.

How was the CRF 2016-2019 developed?

The CRF 2016-2019 was developed to measure progress in implementing the Update to the Institutional Strategy, drawing upon lessons learned from the CRF 2012-2015, the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda (including the Sustainable Development Goals), experiences of other multilateral development banks (MDBs), and active engagement with the IDB’s Board of Executive Directors and CRF Network of Champions - a group of senior technical specialists from throughout the IDBG.
