Environmental Scan of Evaluation Capacity in Alberta

Members of the CES, Alberta and NWT Chapter Advocacy Working Committee are pleased to present the final report of an Environmental Scan of Evaluation Capacity in Alberta. 

A Health Research and Evaluation Intern within the Performance Management & Evaluation department at AIHS in Edmonton undertook this project. Working closely with the Advocacy group, the intern conducted a situational analysis, reviewed relevant literature and documentation on evaluation capacity in Alberta, conducted subject matter expert interviews and reported on the findings. This project aimed to identify evaluation needs and capacity, evaluation infrastructure and processes, human resources, funding and networks related to evaluation, as well as to engage key stakeholders and target groups in the process.
