The purpose of this guidance document is to provide USAID staff in the Missions and at Headquarters with guidance on choosing whether to conduct an internal or external evaluation. While required evaluations must be external, USAID Missions/Operating Units (OUs) are encouraged to conduct non-required evaluations as needed for management purposes or organizational learning. This resource is for use by USAID staff.
