These Standards (valid April 2014 to April 2015) were developed by the Indonesia Program as part of their Evaluation Capacity Building Program - an institutional change program to improve the quality and use of M&E and to integrate evaluative thinking into everyday work. They were integrated into agency-wide evaluation guidance in 2012 and provide a strong tool for the articulation of expectations of the quality expected from a range of M&E products in the aid program. They are updated annually in response to feedback. These changes not only address technical content, but also clarity in the language and explanations of concepts suitable for application in a wide range of country contexts. These Standards were also subjected to a formal peer review in September 2012.
The Standards are based on a careful assessment of aid program staff roles and functions, and an in-depth assessment of the barriers and facilitating factors that have led to current quality in evaluation practice.
