Independent Evaluator Workgroup

Scope and Purpose

The Independent Evaluator Workgroup meets to discuss options for establishing a program evaluation function within the Chesapeake Bay Program. The Enhance Partnering Leadership and Management Goal Implementation Team was charged by the Principals’ Staff Committee (PSC) to develop options for an evaluation process and bring it back to the PSC after review and concurrence by the Management Board (MB). In December 2014, the Chesapeake Bay Accountability and Recovery Act of 2014 was passed. This law establishes a requirement for an independent evaluator. The workgroup is currently working to develop a process for implementing and establishing the independent evaluator.
