Summative evaluation of the Standards Research Grants and Research Development Initiatives programs : final report / prepared for: Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council ; prepared by: Goss Gilroy...: CR22-78/2010E-PDF

"While both Standard Research Grant (SRG) and Research Development Initiative (RDI) are relatively long-running programs, and both have been subject to management reviews focusing on design and delivery issues, neither has been formally evaluated. The timing of the evaluation was determined by SSHRC’s Evaluation Plan for 2008-09 to 2010-11. As well, the conduct of the evaluation is consistent with the new Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) Evaluation Policy (April 2009), which states that all direct program spending must be evaluated every five years. Furthermore, evaluations are a valuable input to the four-year cycle of Strategic Review."--Executive Summary.
