GAO releases report on PEPFAR evaluation activities

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report titled “President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief: Agencies Can Enhance Evaluation Quality, Planning, and Dissemination,” which details its review of “PEPFAR evaluation activities, . . . the extent to which evaluation findings, conclusions, and recommendations were supported, and . . . the extent to which PEPFAR policies and procedures adhere to established general evaluation principles.”

Based on its analysis, the GAO recommended “that State work with CDC and USAID to (1) improve adherence to common evaluation standards, (2) develop PEPFAR evaluation plans, (3) provide guidance for assessing and documenting evaluators’ independence and qualifications, and (4) increase online accessibility of evaluation results.”
