3.1. When to engage the evaluation team

The timing of engaging the evaluation team will depend on size and complexity of the evaluation. For large and complex evaluations, it may be worth engaging an evaluation team at the development stage to help complete the Evaluation work plan template. For smaller evaluations, the program team may prepare the evaluation work plan and then engage evaluation teams for the evaluations, as required.

The commissioning agency should consider expertise, resourcing and cost when determining engagement timing.
