The guidelines are divided into four key areas:

  1. Utility: The utility guidelines are intended to ensure that an evaluation will serve the information needs of intended users and be owned by stakeholders.
  2. Feasibility: The feasibility guidelines are intended to ensure that an evaluation will be realistic, prudent, diplomatic, and frugal.
  3. Propriety - The propriety guidelines are intended to ensure that an evaluation will be conducted legally, ethically, and with due regard for the welfare of those involved in the evaluation, as well as those affected by its results.
  4. Accuracy - The accuracy guidelines are intended to ensure that an evaluation will reveal and convey technically adequate information about the features that determine worth of merit of the program being evaluated.
