Evidence Plans


The Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 ("Evidence Act"), signed into law on January 14, 2019, emphasizes collaboration and coordination to advance data and evidence-building functions in the Federal Government by statutorily mandating Federal evidence-building activities, open government data, and confidential information protection and statistical efficiency.

Title I of the Evidence Act requires the 24 CFO-Act agencies to:

  • designate Evaluation Officers,
  • develop evidence-building plans (Learning Agendas), Annual Evaluation Plans, and agency evaluation policies, and
  • conduct capacity assessments to further evidence-building activities.

This page serves as a central home for these plans and supporting activities.
