DAC Evaluation Quality Standards

What are you looking for?

The OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) has published guidelines for good practice in development evaluation. These standards are designed to improve the quality of evaluation processes and products, and to facilitate cooperation. The principles behind them were developed internationally on a consensus basis. They are organised according to the typical stages of an evaluation and include all aspects of the process – from the description of the rationale, the point of view and the context as well as planning, design, implementation and reporting right through to learning and using the findings – that are crucial for a high-quality evaluation.
