The government, through its policies, is trying to expand the boundaries of accountability by monitoring and evaluation. Therefore designing a monitoring and evaluation system in each of the areas of government activities, in addition to learning policy, also helps to improve policies and policy making. Increasing demand for knowledge, endeavors of top sovereignty in committing to science and technology, developing a comprehensive scientific map, changing the admissions system, expansion of academic education and research institutions, requires the need for developing a monitoring and evaluation of the policies of the Ministry of Education. In this study, a monitoring and evaluation model is designed using five criteria includes Relevancy, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability, and impact by results-based management. This model is tested in the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology. Results show that the groundwork for the development of this model started from the introduction of monitoring and evaluation and the three main groups demand-driven assessment include Sovereignty, state and civil society which provide  its way through results-based management chain .
