At Afi, we want to promote the culture of evaluation through the generation and dissemination of knowledge and empirical evidence that allows a global understanding of the impact of an intervention, whether public or private.

The ultimate goal of the policy evaluations we carry out is to draw conclusions based on evidence to improve the design, implementation and effects of an intervention, while promoting transparency and accountability.

This service is aimed at all entities or institutions in the public or private sector interested in understanding the results and impact, both obtained and expected, of an intervention.

The evaluation of an intervention can be carried out at any stage of the policy cycle, each one corresponding to a different type of evaluation: Evaluability assessments, ex ante evaluations, mid-term or implementation evaluations, ex post evaluations or comprehensive evaluations.

We also produce Evaluation Plans, in which we offer the contracting institution a way to guide the set of evaluations to be carried out throughout the life cycle of the policy. These allow for a structured planning of the information, agents and issues to be evaluated, as well as a commitment to the moment in time in which they will be carried out.

To carry out this work, we have people with complementary technical profiles that allow us to offer the application of all the methodologies that must be used in an evaluation process, both quantitative and qualitative.

We have extensive experience in evaluations in a wide variety of sectors, such as, for example:

  • Labour market impact evaluations.
  • Relevance, coherence, efficiency and impact evaluations of financial instruments.
  • Design of social experiments for the third sector.
  • Evaluations of evaluability, design, procedures, economics, results and impact of financial aid to citizens, companies and the self-employed.

RedEv Members

Reflecting our interest and commitment to policy evaluation, Afi is a member of RedEv, an alliance formed by Afi, Ivie and Ksnet, which aims to help spread the culture of evaluation and transparency, promoting a decision-making model based on objective data in public and private institutions. To this end, it has multidisciplinary teams with extensive experience in the field of policy evaluation, from the diagnostic phase to impact assessment, including the design and implementation of actions.

Afi, institutional partner of the SEE

In June 2023, Afi joined the Spanish Evaluation Society (SEE) as institutional partners, as a sign of interest and commitment to public policy evaluation, from our Public Finance team.

This collaboration will allow us to improve the design, execution and effects of public policies, thus promoting transparency, effectiveness and efficiency, as well as accountability. At Afi we have been offering financial, budgetary and economic advice for almost 30 years, both to public administrations and the private sector, supporting the processes of rationalization and modernization of policies and public administrations themselves.
