An important part of any grant is its evaluation. Implementing a new project provides important benefits, and the most objective way to show your progress and measure the project’s results is through an external evaluator. An experienced external evaluator can assist you in designing an appropriate evaluation plan for a winning proposal and will provide credibility in completing the evaluation.
