CDC’s Framework for Program Evaluation
The Immunization Program Evaluation (IPE) requirement was first implemented for all 64 immunization awardees in 2008. CDC's goal for this requirement is to enable immunization awardees to improve their programs by systematically evaluating their program using CDC's Framework for Program Evaluation. Evaluations can provide awardees with the evidence needed to:
- Manage programs more effectively and efficiently
- Assess and improve existing activities
- Plan and implement new activities
- Understand reasons for performance
- Demonstrate value
- Ensure accountability
- Guide to Immunization Program Evaluation for Awardees [45 pages]
This 2007 guide was designed for immunization awardees and is organized around the six steps of the CDC Evaluation Framework. It includes examples, worksheets, and step-by-step guidance for developing an evaluation plan.
