The ARC Evaluation Strategy is a high level, principles based document that has been designed to guide and strengthen evaluation activity in the ARC and reinforce evaluative thinking in our policy and program processes.
The Strategy recognises the important role evaluation plays in helping to meet our requirements as a Commonwealth entity for high standards of performance and accountability. It aims to ensure evaluation in the ARC is robust, targeted to inform decision making and supports continuous improvement.
The Strategy was first released in 2018 and reviewed in September 2020. It is reviewed every two years.
