Collaborations exist with, among others, the federations of non-governmental actors, the Belgian Investment Company for Developing Countries (BIO) and the Belgian Development Agency Enabel.
The SEO is also present in several steering committees. As such, it is part of the steering committee of the evaluations carried out by BIO. Some evaluations of Enabel are also regularly followed up, such as the real time evaluation on the Covid-19 response and the strategic evaluation of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and Skills Development for Employment.
The service is also part of international initiatives. The SEO closely monitors certain evaluations carried out by the European Union, which makes it possible to assess Belgium's contributions as a Member State. The SEO comments on these evaluations. For example, the European Commission's evaluation of the Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF) was recently followed up in a consultation group and in cooperation with the Special Envoy for Asylum and Migration.

Finally, the SEO is also responsible for the certification of the evaluation capacity of all Belgian federally funded development actors. Information on Belgian NGOs, institutional actors and their projects is available through NGO Open Book and can be obtained with the three federations: ngo-federatie, ACODEV and Fiabel.
