LSE have published a report about Evaluation in government which complements the work published by the National Audit Office in 2011 on option appraisal, which assessed prospective costs and benefits of planned interventions. It examined the coverage, quality, use and resource costs of evaluation activity conducted or commissioned by government departments.

This report is aimed at staff responsible for commissioning, producing and using evaluation evidence within departments. There are specific findings which will also be of interest to the Treasury and Cabinet Office.
