Ian Patrick & Associates Pty Ltd provides specialist consultancy in program and policy evaluation, development of monitoring and evaluation frameworks, training and mentoring to develop evaluation capacity, and strategy development. We also undertake research and organisational reviews.
Dr. Ian Patrick established the company in 1999 and has provided evaluation consultancy across a range of sectors including human services, public health, education, law and justice, environment, community development, the arts, disaster management, and migration and Indigenous issues.
Our clients are Australian government departments and agencies (at National, State and Local levels), non-government agencies and international development agencies. We work both in Australia, and internationally – particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. Our experience crosses 29 countries. We work on initiatives of varying sizes and levels of complexity, and partner and collaborate with others depending on the evaluation scope and brief. We are able to draw on a network of other consultants, researchers and technical specialists as required.
We are committed to working collaboratively with clients and stakeholders to support organisational and program improvement, and promote learning from evaluation. Our experience highlights the value of participation to build ownership, understanding and uptake of evaluation findings and recommendations.
