Guidelines on Ethical Conduct of Evaluation and Code of Ethics (Revised July 2013)
The original Guidelines were endorsed by the Board of the Australasian Evaluation Society (AES) in December 1997, following a process of development and consultation with members over a number of years. Since early 1998 they have served as a training resource, and have been used by many organisations to inform their evaluation policies.
In December 2000 the Guidelines were incorporated into the AES Code of Ethics which applies to all AES members. Updated versions of the Code and Guidelines were endorsed in 2013
A printed copy of the Guidelines for the Ethical Conduct of Evaluations has been provided to all members of the Society. Additional copies are available at $11 each (incl. GST). Overseas orders are $10.
