Abstract: The programming period 2014-2020 can be distinguished by the increased emphasis of the European Union on the evaluation of the Europe­an Structural and Investment Funds. The main goal of the evaluation is to increase the economic, social, and environmental impact on the lives of in­habitants. In the European Union countries, it is made by central coordina­tion organs and managing organs of operational programs and is realized on national and regional levels. The main objective of the paper is to ana­lyze the evaluation of ESIF in Slovakia and the Czech Republic and find its differences. The major methods used in the paper are the analysis and com­parison of the evaluation process in both countries. The realization of the evaluation is based on the main evaluation document – Plan of the Evalua­tion and it is focused on similar areas.
