The Georgian Evaluation Association was founded in early 2008. The Association brings together people who are concerned with democratic development of the country. These individuals care about quality monitoring and evaluation of the ongoing political, economic and social processes and reforms, programs and projects. They strive for the development of evaluation criteria and mechanisms or indicators that will enable us to measure the impact of completed works and consequently plan success-oriented projects for the future.

The Association is vitally interested in establishing an institutional system of evaluation, promoting the growth of professional cadres, developing and instituting evaluation standards, establishing an Evaluators Code of Ethics, enhancing public awareness in regard to the process of evaluation, and, increasing public support for this evaluation process.
At the end of 2007 and in the beginning of 2008 an initiative group developing the idea of establishing the Georgian Evaluation Association was created in the Horizonti Foundation. The group elaborated by-law a 5 year strategic plan and 1 year working plan of the association.

Therefore, the Horizonti Foundation is an author of the idea and founder of a new Georgian non-governmental organization called the Georgian Evaluation Association. The Horizonti Foundation will provide the newly established association with active assistance, and support its further institutional development and financial strengthening in the next two to three years.

The Georgian Evaluation Association brings together people who aim to support qualified monitoring and evaluation of the ongoing political, economic and social processes and reforms, programs and projects; to create evaluation criteria and mechanisms or criteria that will enable us to measure the results and impact of completed works and therefore plan success-oriented projects for the future.

Members of the Association consider evaluation a crucial strategic tool for acquiring knowledge and experience, simplifying decision making and for good organizational management and control.

president's introduction

With this letter I would like to tell you about the purpose for setting up this internet site, as well as about the goals for founding the Georgia Evaluation Association (GEA) several years ago and about the cause to the realization of which we work relentlessly.

It was the idea of the Horizonti Foundation to establish and this organization laid foundation to the creation of the Georgian Evaluation Association. You will probably ask, so what, plenty of associations and unions have been established and disappeared without us ever knowing they even existed. A crucial issue is the goal of an organization and the benefits it can bring to a country. The work performed by GEA in Georgia is absolutely novel, so novel that there are still very few adherents, not only in Georgia, but throughout the post-Soviet area. While the developed world’s government or civil organizations cannot function without having the evaluation component in place. In Western states and the developed Eastern democracies this component became a central one in the process of development of a country. The importance and necessity of evaluation is not argued, this is seen as a regular activity.

The development of evaluation, as of an independent field started in the West after the World War II, this was when the international organizations – the UN, the World Bank, etc. set the objective to determine the impact of performed activities and achieved results. Evaluation activity evolved gradually. And starting from the 1920’s the development of a new methodology of evaluation theory and practice was commenced.

International, as well as local non-governmental organizations (NGO) played a crucial role in the development of program evaluation. Horizonti Foundation, an organization of the third sector, was at the forefront of the efforts to introduce evaluation activity; this foundation was managing the projects and grant programs funded by foreign donor organizations in Georgia. It was this very foundation that started to introduce monitoring and evaluation tools in own activities and to bring in and engage foreign experts of the field in program evaluation.

Regrettably, the wider public is not aware of either the essence or the importance of comprehensive evaluation of activities; moreover, people do not have exhaustive information about its benefits. It should be mentioned, though, that a number of scientists and practitioners in Georgia are taking measures to address this gap. Further, considering that Georgians are fast to acquire innovations, we believe that the time to widely introduce program evaluation is near and it would be desirable to be ready for necessary processes.

Why is the evaluation of program, organizational, strategies, policies needed and why do we advocate for its significance so ardently? Maybe because this is almost the only effective tool for proper, democratic development of any country and, unfortunately, in Georgia no one has ever held this tool. Or maybe because we want to show to the citizens how this tool works, what it regulates, what prospects it holds and what timeframe these cover. Let us start with the first one: evaluation enables us to ascertain whether the result of a planned activity will be efficient and desired. In other words, this means that without an evaluation system in place we will be unable to measure impact. This, in turn, means that every organization should introduce an internal system of monitoring and evaluation, it should have in place result-oriented strategic plans with indicators, simply put – "we should bring a thermometer to home and take temperature."

It works similarly in the case of democratic governance. By introducing evaluation methodologies and tools we will measure the effectiveness of performed activities at governmental and non-governmental organizations, as well as business companies, media institutions or academic circles. In other words, evaluation is a successful management tool, without which it is impossible to measure success.

Significant changes are performed at present. Changes are always related to the development of a new thinking. In this case this is about new approaches to management and the introduction of new tools – replacement of the existing plans (mostly strategic plans) with result-oriented strategic plans and the result-oriented management systems. Currently such a system does not exist in Georgia, with the exception of a limited number of “experiments” that GEA implemented at some public and private organizations and where result-oriented management, monitoring and evaluation systems are being introduced.

The most important task at present is to establish evaluation as a sector in Georgia!

To achieve this, we need a cadre of professionals. To train professionals we should introduce the teaching of evaluation at the university level. You will probably ask: “who will teach?”, in response I will refer back again and say that at the end of the 90’s Horizonti Foundation was one of the first NGO’s to start spreading the idea of program evaluation, provision of trainings and seminars to local and foreign organizations on the topic of evaluation. As a result, firstly, civil sector players became aware of the evaluation theory, and secondly, the NGO’s accumulated the experience of monitoring and evaluation of own activities.

Although, this is still not sufficient for university programs but it is absolutely sufficient for us to move ahead, talk to foreign friends in this field and set up university programs in evaluation, in order to train evaluators in Georgia jointly with and with the assistance of foreign colleagues. It is one of the principal directions of GEA to establish and tighten contacts among evaluators, share existing experience and support their professional growth.

For the implementation of evaluation it is necessary to have a necessary legislative base, raise public awareness about the importance of evaluation, and introduce evaluation standards. It is highly important to develop the culture of evaluation in Georgia and any organization that has this quality finds it very easy to see every way and path towards success.
