What Do I Look For?

If, after careful deliberation, you decide to hire a local evaluator, it is often helpful to organize a hiring committee. The hiring committee should be as large as necessary to adequately represent the various stakeholders, but small enough so that the decisionmaking process is efficient and not overly burdensome. The hiring committee should report back to all of the partners (via periodic e-mails, newsletters, meetings, and so forth) to keep everyone apprised of the selection process.

The rest of this section will guide you in considering the evaluator's competencies and roles and responsibilities, regardless of whether the evaluation is to be performed by project staff or a local evaluator.
