Evaluating government programs

The Queensland Government spends millions of dollars each year providing services to improve Queenslanders’ standard of living and to improve people’s social and economic outcomes.

It’s important that the Government is accountable for the money it spends and that Queenslanders can be confident that government policies and programs are meeting its objectives efficiently and effectively.

The Queensland Government Program Evaluation Guidelines outline a broad set of wise-practice principles to assist agencies to plan, commission, manage and conduct consistent, transparent and high-quality evaluation.

The guidelines are accompanied by separate information sheets that describe specific evaluation topics in more detail and complement a range of other existing Queensland Government guidelines including the Performance Management Framework and Project Assessment Framework.
