When delivering vital public sector and international development projects, it’s crucial to know whether they are being effective. Rigorous research, monitoring and evaluation help project teams understand whether their approaches are leading to desired outcomes.

In any context, improving results requires an understanding of what works and what does not. Coffey works in partnership with donors, governments, multilateral organisations, foundations, universities, NGOs and businesses to help them understand the effectiveness, efficiency and impact of their work and to identify lessons for future programs and policies.

We undertake rigorous evaluations and equip organisations and projects with robust monitoring and evaluation systems. Our experts have conducted more than 600 evaluations for a range of clients, including the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), UK Department for International Development (DFID), the European Commission, the US Department of State and the US Agency for International Development (USAID). 

We also help improve the performance of government agencies, organisations and projects through our innovative tools and experience in strategic management and performance improvement.
