Many para-governmental institutions in Korea have been criticized by the Korean people because they have been managed unaccountably and inefficiently. They have received implicit subsidies and protective measures from government without explicit criteria. So, they are called as 'agencies under the umbrella of government'. They have mainly depended on aids and supports from the government without their own efforts for their going concern. The government control also could have delayed or prevented adjustments to the changed environment in a number of cases. The poor image on them have gone from bad to worse since IMF bail in 1987.
Thus, the Korean government(the ministry of planning and budget) enacted 'the framework law for managing agencies under the umbrella of government' in 2003 after many twists and turns. The law introduced the comprehensive evaluation and monitoring system instead of the inherited government's interferences.
The purpose of this paper, with the act as a momentum, is to review how to design the evaluation and monitoring system prior to implementation. The system is examined in the five aspects of 'Who should evaluate them(evaluation agency)?', 'What should be evaluated in their management results(evaluation contents)?', 'How should be evaluated(evaluation methods)?', 'When should be evaluated(evaluation time)?' and 'Condition: atmosphere and maturity in evaluation'.
The gradual enforcement of the evaluation system is emphasized because they are not ready to be appraised and their objectives are too divers to be compared in the same stick in conclusion.
