We provide a full range of evaluation services that measure the processes, performance, and impacts of global development projects. We produce rigorous evaluations with a focus on providing useful information for decision-making. Our work helps our clients learn, adapt, and improve their programming to address development challenges. Our approach is built on international standards of excellence requiring evaluations to be useful, practical, ethical, and accurate.

Our performance evaluations cover a variety of evaluation purposes and designs – from traditional snapshot and longitudinal designs to more innovative developmental and participatory approaches. Through these, we examine the efficiency, relevance, and effectiveness of activities and processes. We assess the sustainability and institutional impacts of interventions and partnerships. We emphasize local participation, organizational skill development, and the usefulness of the evaluation to inform decision-making.

Utilization is a guiding principle of SI’s PE approach and forms the basis for our Evaluation Quality, Use, and Impact system. EQUI is SI’s proprietary system for managing evaluations to achieve impact. EQUI combines evaluator training, quality assurance, and stakeholder engagement to produce accurate and useful results.
