The chapter focuses on the federal executive, discussing the institutional mechanisms developed by the federal government to promote systematic, ongoing policy evaluation. They emphasise the historical dimension, here as regards monitoring and evaluation programmes, particularly since the 2000s. They attribute the growth of a technical culture of monitoring and evaluation to increasing government emphasis on social policy after re-democratisation, the expansion of public policy programmes at universities, the development of new information technology capabilities and the influence of international agencies on the government policy and programme evaluation agenda.

Keywords:   Policy monitoring, Policy evaluation, Operational audits, Technical culture, Information technologies, Federal Government, Brazil
