Getting the best from external evaluations - Principles for fundersNEW

Last Updated: Wednesday 10 May 2017

This resource is about external evaluations (for example of a grant programme), that are commissioned from consultants, universities or others.

The headline message is that a successful commissioned evaluation comes from a good relationship between the commissioner and the evaluator, a shared purpose and a commitment to learning.

It gives funders practical principles on what they can do to make sure they get the best from the external evaluations.
