BIS monitoring and evaluation

This series brings together all documents relating to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) monitoring and evaluation.

Monitoring and evaluation are important for policy development and delivery because they provide evidence of what is being produced, how it is being implemented and whether or not it is achieving its objectives.

At the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills our economists, statisticians and social researchers work closely with our policy colleagues to make sure the emerging understanding is timely and useful.
