This public procurement competition relates to the evaluation of the Goal Programme’s implementation and progress towards the programme’s short-term outcomes.
The Goal Programme for Public Service Reform supports systemic change in public services in Ireland and Northern Ireland with the aim of improving outcomes for people using public services.
The programme is delivered by the Centre for Effective Services (CES) in partnership with seven government departments in Ireland and Northern Ireland and has been designed to support the Public Service Reform agendas in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The Goal Programme is funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies to help embed the benefits of their strategic investments in state funded health, education and social services.
The evaluation should assess what happened across the programme, identify what changed and provide insights into what contributed to those changes, and disseminate the findings to inform future public service reforms. It is not an evaluation of the individual projects, rather their collective contribution to the Goal Programme outcomes.
