Draft report
Description

This draft Indigenous Evaluation Strategy provides a whole-of-government framework for Australian government agencies to use when selecting, planning, conducting and using evaluations of policies and programs affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The strategy puts Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at its centre. It recognises the need to draw on the perspectives, priorities and knowledges of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people if outcomes are to be improved.

Reasons for the strategy:

  1. to centre Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, perspectives, priorities and knowledges in evaluations of policies and programs that affect them
  2. to ‘lift the bar’ on the quality of evaluations of policies and programs affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  3. to enhance the use of evaluations to inform policy and program design and implementation by supporting a culture of evaluation and building a body of evidence and data on the effectiveness of policies and programs
  4. to promote a whole-of-government approach to priority setting and evaluation of policies and programs affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
