National Evaluation Policy Framework: Republic of South Africa

This National Evaluation Policy from the Republic of South Africa (RSA) outlines the focus of evaluation across all government departments in the RSA'


This policy framework provides the basis for a minimum system of evaluation across 
government. Its main purpose is to promote quality evaluations which can be used for 
learning to improve the effectiveness and impact of government, by reflecting on what is 
working and what is not working and revising interventions accordingly. It seeks to ensure  that credible and objective evidence from evaluation is used in planning, budgeting, organisational improvement, policy review, as well as on-going programme and project management, to improve performance. It provides a common language for evaluation in the public service.
