Resumen

This article comprises the development and application of a methodology that helps perform ex-post assessment of lineal infrastructure projects, based on prospective analysis given by the Vester matrix crossed impact diagram, information management and the definition and implementation of a series of indicators that improve the objective analysis of the evolution of the project. The methodology is supported by a review of information, definitions of impacts, construction of a Vester matrix, crossed impact diagram, weighing scale, net quantitative valuation of the project, and construction of a set of indicators. The ex-post assessment presented can be used by the governmental agencies for tracking and controlling engineering projects in their jurisdiction: It also allows creating base lines for different kinds of projects, which potentiates environmental legal regulation. The ex-post assessment results help the organization define which sub-projects to execute in order to minimize, correct, and compensate negative impacts of projects. It also allows the organization to prioritize and make a responsible control of its projects, whether they are of social, legal or environmental kind. Finally, using the results of indicators and Vester matrix, an integral indicator for the whole project is proposed, which has a qualitative and quantitative scale that allows a user to value the project in a holistic approach.
