3.3. Select the evaluation team
The selection of the evaluator or evaluation team should be a transparent process.
The expertise required for the evaluation will be dependent on the type of evaluation. Table 18 below lists broad essential evaluator characteristics.
Table 18: Essential evaluator characters or qualities matched to the main purpose of the evaluation
|Main purpose of the evaluation||Essential evaluator qualities|
|Accountability: Emphasis on determining the worth or merit of a project/program.|
|Learning: Emphasis on facilitating project/program improvements.|
|Innovation: Emphasis on facilitating the design of new projects/programs based on what works.|
The Territory Government guide to procurement sourcing provides information on the assessment and negotiation process. The qualities across the team should also include a good mix of:
- quantitative and qualitative research skills
- multidisciplinary skills (for example, economic, demographic, environmental, sociological)
- thematic and contextual knowledge and experience
- gender and cultural balance
- language skills.
