The necessity of design and implementation of performance evaluation systems for project-based research and development (R&D) centres is one of the crucial issues in all countries. The purpose of this paper is to provide an integrated performance evaluation method for research and development institutes. The proposed approach is a synthesis of BSC, AHP and network DEA appropriate for engineering departments and units of these organizations. Defining Indexes as input and output, regarding different features of BSC and prioritizing them based on expert judgment, to calculate unites and sub-unit's efficiency of these organizations, network DEA will be applied. Research and Development institutes, usually, are conglomeration of divergent administration unites and research sub-units, which could be considered as sub Decision Making Unites (sub-DMU) in this efficiency measurement model. Obtained results through this suggested integrated approach indicate its strength in the performance evaluation of R&D centres, moreover, its compatibility must be applied in all the research-oriented organizations.
