Long-term fiscal sustainability analysis: Benchmarks for Independent Fiscal Institutions

External evaluation is one of the key principles recommended by the OECD for an Independent Fiscal Institution to function well. External evaluations could take the form of periodic reviews of selected pieces of work, regular annual evaluations of the quality of analysis, permanent installations such as an advisory panel or board, or peer reviews by an IFI in another country.
