Monitoring and Evaluation framework; Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning framework; M&E framework; MEL framework

An evaluation framework (sometimes called a Monitoring and Evaluation framework, or more recently a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning framework) provides an overall framework for evaluations across different programs or different evaluations of a single program (e.g. process evaluation; impact evaluation). 

An evaluation framework can include guidance on data sources and management processes. It sometimes includes an overall program theory/logic model and principles to guide the planning, management and conduct of evaluations.
