This evaluation policy framework is an element of the Policy Framework for the Government-Wide Monitoring and Evaluation System in South Africa.
"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."
