To what extent are leading U.S. foreign assistance agencies - USAID and the Millennium Challenge Corporation -  currently using data, evidence, and evaluation to invest American taxpayer dollars in what works? According to Results for America - the organization behind Moneyball for Government and the annual Federal Invest in What Works Index - USAID and MCC are among the most “evidence-forward” agencies in the U.S. federal government. Join Results for America and senior evaluation-focused officials from both agencies to learn about the strides each agency has made over the past five years to strengthen its capabilities, policies, processes, and practices for using data, evidence, and evaluation to drive cost-effective delivery of development impact.
