Abstract: Stakeholder requirements for third-party evaluations to measure funding compliance and program effectiveness are increasing, perhaps especially, for projects involving multiple grant recipients. While these kinds of evaluations may be onerous for the organizations under scrutiny, they can also provide them with tremendous benefits.
