The National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) has established the Indigenous Evaluation Committee (IEC) to provide independent strategic and technical advice, to support the improvement of evaluation practices of the NIAA in line with the IAS Evaluation Framework’s principles of relevance, credibility, robustness and appropriateness. 

The IEC:

  • oversees the implementation of the Indigenous Advancement Strategy Evaluation Framework;
  • provides advice to the NIAA in preparing its forward program of evaluation activities and endorses the Annual Evaluation Work Plan;
  • provides technical advice and guidance for the NIAA’s evaluations to ensure they are high quality, ethical, inclusive and focused on improving outcomes for Indigenous Australians;
  • provides technical advice to the NIAA on its program performance reporting activities;
  • fosters leadership and assists in bringing the diverse perspectives of Indigenous Australians into evaluation processes; and
  • participates in relevant meetings and events to help promote the IAS Evaluation Framework and continual improvements in evaluation and its use.

The IEC meets three times a year, and undertakes out of session reviews of key NIAA evaluations, reviews and research projects. Remuneration is based on the Remuneration Tribunal (Remuneration and Allowances for Holders of Part-time Public Office) Determination No 2 2023 or latest update.


The NIAA is seeking members who are independent from government with a preference for First Nations representation.
