South African National Evaluation Plan
The current NEP covers a total of 30 evaluations planned for the next five financial years (2020-2025). The scope of the present plan, unlike previous versions, extends to Municipalities and State Owned Enterprises (SOEs). Our evaluation focus areas therefore, includes a District-based Service Delivery Model “Khawuleza Model”, evaluations of the Municipal Finance Management System (MFMS) and cooperate governance in SOEs, will be respectively conducted for the first time in an NEP.
The 2020-2025 NEP also includes the implementation of our latest portfolio of evaluation approaches, namely: rapid evaluations, sectoral reviews and a gender focussed evaluation. Furthermore, the strategic identification of evaluations necessitates that the selection be aligned to the seven priorities of government as well as key strategic frameworks and plans such as the Medium-Term Strategic Framework (MTSF) and the 2030 National Development Plan (NDP), thereby ensuring synergy between government planning and processes of evaluation.
