Introducing Magenta Book 2020: Updated UK Government Guidance on Evaluation

If you partner with or provide consultancy services to Government Departments, then this webinar is a must for you

The Magenta Book is a widely used reference for anyone working in evaluation. Come along to this online session to hear about it from the Cross-Government Team behind the 2020 update. They will be on hand for your questions.

Without robust, defensible evaluation evidence, government cannot know whether interventions are effective or what value they deliver for the public. Magenta Book 2020, published by HM Treasury in April, provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of evaluation in government: its scoping, design, conduct, use and dissemination as well as the capabilities required of Government evaluators.  It focuses specifically on government evaluation users and their needs; provides guidance on the evolving approaches and methods used in evaluation; and emphasises the value of evaluation in providing evidence for the design, implementation and review stages of policy development to delivery.

In this webinar, members of the Cross-Government Evaluation Group who authored Magenta Book 2020 will highlight its new features and their implications for the conduct of evaluation in government.

Cross-Government Evaluation Group (CGEG)

CGEG aims to improve the supply of, stimulate demand for, and encourage the use of, good quality evaluation evidence in government. It has recently published a revised edition of the Magenta Book guidance on what to consider when designing an evaluation.

The speakers for this webinar are CGEG members and authors of the Magenta Book: Tim Chadborn, Mike Daly, Steven Finch, Marianne Law and Tarran Macmillan.
