Evaluation Policy

An evaluation policy outlines the definition, concept, role and use of evaluation within an organisation. 

The policy document is often a fairly brief document, which is supported by more detailed guidance, guidelines or a procedures manual.  Sometimes the policy document is structured around a number of key principles.

Evaluation policies should also 'include the institutional framework and definition  of roles and responsibilities; an explanation of how the evaluation function and  evaluations are planned, managed and budgeted; and a clear statement on disclosure and  dissemination.' (UNEG)
