Designated staff time for evaluation

This strategy for securing sufficient resources for conducting evaluation involves allocating a specified amount of staff time (hours or days per week) to work on evaluation.

This strategy also has the benefit of supporting the practice and culture of evaluation in the organization more broadly. Consider incorporating evaluation related responsibilities in job descriptions and department work plans.  This strategy requires leadership support and sensitivity to staff perspectives. Potential drawbacks include staff backlash or resistance to adding more activities to already busy schedules.
