What is programme and policy evaluation?

The public sector needs to be assured that they are investing their limited funds to achieve the best outcomes. Similarly, private sector organisations, utilising public funding, must also demonstrate that they are making a value for money contribution to government policy.

In order to do this these organisations need to evaluate the impact of their policies and programmes. These evaluations can take the form of extensive data collection, research and analysis and they enable the organisation to provide tangible evidence of the success or otherwise of their initiatives.
