Using External Consultants
Using consultants can be helpful, but only if you know what you want them to do. This section will help you to:
- Work out what you need from an external evaluation, and
- Write an effective brief
Find a consultant
Evaluation Support Scotland is not able to do an evaluation for you. But you can use our consultants database to find consultants who can do external evaluations. We do NOT endorse or provide our own judgement on consultants or verify what they say about themselves.
Register as a consultant
If you are a consultant providing evaluation services, you can register to be added to our Consultants Database.
If you are already in our Consultants Database and would like to update your details, you can sign in.
