Allen + Clarke are innovative, creative, and like to challenge habitual ways of thinking. Our clients have confidence in our proven ability to deliver practical solutions with clarity, precision and conviction.

We offer the full ambit of evaluation services at operational and strategic levels, from determining need through to reporting and supporting use. We deliver external, independent evaluation services, and we provide mentoring, training and technical support to clients to enable them to undertake evaluations themselves.

We do evaluation work in New Zealand, Australia and the wider Asia-Pacific region. Our work spans health, international development, education, transport, workplace health and safety, indigenous peoples’ development, social services, justice, environment and local government sectors.

Our experience ranges from completing rapid reviews of stand-alone programmes or projects, through to multi-year evaluations of complex and complicated policies and suites of programmes.

Our approach to evaluation is underpinned by national and international professional evaluation practice standards and codes of ethics informed by principles of utility, feasibility, propriety and accuracy, and cultural responsiveness.

We take a bespoke and up-to-the-minute good practice approach – ensuring our evaluations are made to fit the needs and preferences of each client, and the intended use of findings.

Allen + Clarke has three core values:

We give a damn

+ We care about our people and support them to become masters of their craft

+ We form lasting and trusting relationships with partners and clients

+ We want our clients to love what we do

+ We take pride in delivering our best – we do not compromise on quality.

We are courageous

+ We are confident enough to challenge the status quo

+ We make the hard calls

+ We tell it how it is – we are direct and honest

+ We are determined.

We are committed to making a difference for our people, our clients and society.
