The value of evaluation: increasing the impact of evaluation on decision making

Monday 22nd of April 2013
London 12:00pm - 2:30pm

This event focused on evaluation evidence and the barriers and enablers that would assist in greater take-up of evaluation; for instance, better commissioning  more relevant and higher quality evidence and greater application of what has been learned from evaluations.  It also provided a forum to discuss how we embed some of the recommendations set out in the National Audit Office's forthcoming report on government evaluation-due to be launched shortly.


The event was open to all members of the Alliance, but was also suitable for evaluators, commissioners and decision makers in central government, non-departmental public bodies (NDBPs), charities, local authorities, academia and consultancy.

Throughout the event, delegates tweeted using the hashtag #A4UE.  To read a Storify of the conversation on Twitter, click here.
