Policy and programme evaluation

The evaluation of policy and programmes is an important part of how government works at the local, national and EU level. It is vital to understand performance in terms of effectiveness, economy and efficiency so that future designs will maximise impact and value for money.

Our policy and programme evaluation team understand the pressures that policy makers are under, especially in the current economic environment. We work with public sector bodies and government departments to evaluate how effective their policies and programmes have been using a broad range of quantitative and qualitative tools and techniques.  Strong economic analysis is at the core of this work.

 These tools and techniques used include:

  • Statistical and econometric analysis
  • Stakeholder workshops and interviews
  • Economic impact analysis
  • Deliberative research
  • Qualitative and quantitative surveys
  • Value for money assessment
