Extended Country Program Evaluation: Dominican Republic: 2013-2020
The Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE) has prepared its IDB Group Country Program Evaluation (CPE) for the Dominican Republic for the period 2013-2020, covering two strategic planning periods. It is OVE's fifth independent evaluation of the IDB Group's program in the Dominican Republic. Previous evaluations covered the periods 1991-2003 (document RE-306); 2004-2008 (document RE-371); 2010-2013 (document RE-453); and 2013-2016 (document RE-505). This evaluation, like others of this type, aims to analyze the IDB Group's relationship with the Dominican Republic from an independent and comprehensive standpoint, with the twofold purpose of strengthening accountability and sharing lessons learned to inform the Bank's future support and, in particular, the next country strategy. This CPE carefully examines the design, implementation, and outcomes of operations approved or active between 2013 and 2020, taking the national context and applicable strategic documents into account.

Allocative Efficiency of Government Spending for Growth in Latin American Countries
There is scant empirical economic research regarding the way that Latin American governments efficiently allocate their spending across different functions to achieve higher growth. While most papers restrict their analysis to the size of government, much less is known about the composition of spending and its implications for long-term growth. This paper sheds light on how allocating expenditures to investment in quality human and physical capital, and avoiding waste on inefficient expenditures, enhance growth in Latin America. This paper uses a novel dataset on physical and human capital and detailed public spending that includes -for the first time- Latin American countries, which is categorized by a cross-classification that provides the breakdown of government expenditure, both, by economic and by functional heads. The database covers 42 countries of the OECD and LAC between 1985 and 2017. There are five main results. First, the estimated growth equations show significant positive effects of the factors of production on growth and plausible convergence rates (about 2 percent). The estimated effect of the physical investment rate is positive and significant with a long-run elasticity of 1.2. Second, while the addition of years of education as a proxy for human capital tends to have no effect on growth, the addition of a new variable that measures quality-adjusted years of schooling as a proxy for human capital turns out to have a positive and significant effect across all specifications with a long-run elasticity of 1.1. However, if public spending on education (excluding infrastructure spending) is added to the factor specification, growth is not affected. This is mainly because, once quality is considered, spending more on teacher salaries has no effect on student outcomes. Therefore, the key is to increase quality, not just school performance or education spending. Third, both physical and human capital are equally important for growth: the effect of increasing one standard deviation of physical capital or human capital statistically has the same impact on economic growth. Fourth, increasing public investment spending (holding public spending constant) is positive and significant for growth (a 1% increase in public investment would increase the long-term GDP per capita by about 0.3 percent), in addition to the effect of the private investment rate. However, the effect of public spending on payroll, pensions and subsidies does not contribute to economic growth. Fifth, the overall effect of the size of public spending on economic growth is negative in most specifications. An increase in the size of government by about 1 percentage point would decrease 4.1 percent the long-run GDP per capita, but the more effective the government is, the less harmful the size of government is for long-term growth.

Guías de implementación de las revisiones independientes de programa de país (ICPR)
Estas Guías buscan ofrecer mayor claridad sobre la forma en la que OVE realizará un tipo de producto periódico: las Revisiones Independientes de Programa de País (ICPR, por sus siglas en inglés), introducido a través de la aprobación de los Directorios del Protocolo para Productos País de OVE. El propósito de este documento es proveer transparencia a los Directorios, las autoridades de país, y la Administración del BID y BID Invest sobre los métodos, herramientas y procesos utilizados por OVE para las ICPR, y promover consistencia en su elaboración. Las Guías son responsabilidad exclusiva de OVE, en cumplimiento del mandato de los Directorios de realizar las ICPR bajo las condiciones y los principios aprobados en el Protocolo. Se espera que la sistematización introducida por las Guías también contribuya a actividades de capacitación interna y externa; así como a la extracción de lecciones comunes a diferentes países.
