About The Evaluators’ Collective
The Evaluators’ Collective was created in 2017 to enhance the theory and practice of evaluation. This takes the form of Evaluation Consultation Services, The Evaluators’ Collection, Strategy and People Workshop Series and a mentoring program. Ultimately, this work supports the government, not-for-profit and philanthropy sectors to meet their obligations under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability (PGPA) Act 2013.
