Welcome to Evaluation.gov, the home for Federal program evaluation and the Evaluation Officer Council. Evaluation.gov brings together the plans and activities that drive evaluation efforts across the Federal Government.
Year of Evidence for Action
During this year, the Administration will share leading practices from Federal Agencies to generate and use evidence to advance better, more equitable outcomes for all of America, while institutionalizing a culture of evidence-based policymaking and creating new pathways for collaboration between evidence communities inside and outside of the Federal Government.
Evaluation plays a critical role in evidence-based policymaking, helping agencies determine what is and is not working well and answer questions regarding why, for whom, and under what circumstances. Evaluation.gov provides a central home to learn about the Federal evaluation community and the activities it undertakes.
Evaluation Officer Council
The Evaluation Officer Council is comprised of the Evaluation Officers designated by the 24 CFO Act agencies. It provides a forum to exchange information, consult with and advise OMB on issues that affect evaluation functions, coordinate and collaborate on areas of common interest including Evidence Act implementation, and serve in a leadership role for the broader Federal evaluation community.
