Evaluation is always important, but especially so in tight financial times, when the need to learn the lessons of past efforts to maximise value for money and enhance delivery success in future efforts with limited resource is vital. Evaluation is one of SQW's core competencies. 

We work for clients at national, regional and local levels in ex-ante, interim and ex-post evaluation, across the full range of our expertise. We are also market leaders in evaluation methodologies and frameworks, working with our clients to develop tailored approaches to monitoring and evaluation, drawing on our knowledge of European, national and sector-specific guidance and good practice. As well as applying recognised evaluation methodologies, we seek to push the boundaries of evaluation. Through designing and delivering evaluations (and reviewing evaluations by others) for our clients, we have sought to stimulate debate and discussion through active participation and leadership within the evaluation community.
