for Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA)
FaHCSIA currently funds a number of clearinghouses across Australia. In this project the Institute has been contracted to develop a working definition for clearinghouses; and to suggest a methodology for undertaking an evaluation of clearinghouses. The development of the working definition will be based on a review of the literature, plus consultation with key stakeholders associated with the operation of clearinghouses supported by FaHCSIA. The development of suggested evaluation methodology will be based on a review of evaluation forms, approaches and techniques, undertaken in the light of the evaluation terms of reference, the working definition, issues raised by key stakeholders, and the contexts in which the FaHCSIA-supported clearinghouses operate.
