This is a free seminar organised by the NT Regional Network Committee of the AES. Our seminar series provides an opportunity for you to meet with AES members and others in Norther Territory and to share and learn from the experiences of fellow evaluators. Members are encouraged to bring along colleagues with an interest in the topic even if they are not yet members of the AES. Please pass this onto your colleagues and networks.
In April 2019, the Northern Territory Government released the Fiscal Strategy Panel’s Final Report ‘A plan for budget repair’. The report recommended a whole-of-government approach to program evaluation that is integrated into the budget process. This seminar will discuss how a coordinated approach to program evaluation can drive a culture of continuous improvement in government.
Dr Christabelle Darcy is leading the Program Evaluation Unit within the Department of Treasury and Finance. She is keen on building a coordinated and collaborative approach to evaluation across the Northern Territory Public Service. She is a scientist who started her career at Menzies School of Health Research and has since worked in various policy positions in the Commonwealth Government and the Northern Territory Government.
