This policy update reflects the comments and feedback of numerous USAID colleagues in the field and in Washington, as well as
the broader development and evaluation community. We thank those who have generously shared their experiences and
challenges in implementing the USAID Evaluation Policy over the past five years. This update also relies heavily on the pioneering
work of the Evaluation Policy Task Team responsible for the initial development of the USAID Evaluation Policy in 2011.
