It provides a "common framework for consistent application and guidelines for achieving an organization's capacities, its 'track record' in demonstrating performance, its ability to function effectively within its external environment, [...]." (CIDA, 2006) "The CIDA Organizational Assessment Guide serves as an ideal companion piece to CIDA's guide on 'How to perform evaluations'. It is intended for use by Agency staff and consultants involved in the performance of organizational assessments.
