Third Party Evaluation can help you tell your story, improve your programs, and sustain funding.

The demand for grant-funded program accountability is steadily rising as grant stakeholders and/or funding sources strive to understand how program operations compare to the plans laid out in original grant proposals. Including a unique and thorough third-party evaluation plan in your proposal can give you a decisive edge when competing for Higher Education Act (HEA) grants (Title III, Title V, etc.).

Whether you are currently writing a grant proposal or have recently been awarded a grant, your program will benefit from third-party evaluation services used to evaluate and monitor your program, as well as define any process improvements. In fact, the next re-authorization of HEA is expected to include issues pertaining to quality of consumer information, oversight, and innovation (ACE, 2015). A third party evaluation can provide added value to your institution regarding these issues, particularly when it comes to helping you tell your story, improving your programs, and demonstrating program effectiveness to sustain funding.
