IGEES Medium Term Strategy
The IGEES Medium Term Strategy was launched on 27 October 2016.
The IGEES is building on and learning from existing economic and evaluation expertise and increasing levels of evaluation and analysis. This MTS seeks to enhance the level, consistency and quality of output across the IGEES. As such, the focus over the medium term will be:
(1) To have a greater input into and impact on the policy analysis process; and
(2) To generate an increased level of high quality IGEES output to inform the policy debate.
The responsibility for achieving these aims will rest with the IGEES as a whole supported by a revised set of governance arrangements. With a view to fostering a coherent approach across the Service, an IGEES business plan will form the basis for the output of the Service year to year.
