The Indigenous Evaluation Committee (the Committee) is a key part of the Evaluation Framework. Through the provision of independent strategic and technical advice, the Committee supports the improvement of evaluation practices of the National Indigenous Australians Agency in line with the Framework’s principles of relevance, credibility, robustness and appropriateness. One of the responsibilities of the Committee is to endorse the Annual Evaluation Work Plan.
There are currently three members on the Committee, including one Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the National Indigenous Australians Agency. The Agency is in the process of filling two vacancies, the Chair and a regular member position. The extensive skills and expertise of members play an important role in strengthening the evaluation of Indigenous policies and programs, contributing towards a culture of evidence based thinking, and helping to drive better outcomes for Indigenous Australians.
The Committee's Terms of Reference are available in our resource centre.
The Indigenous Evaluation Committee publishes communiqués outlining the key areas of discussion at the meetings.
