Our grant calls for an external evaluator, and we have hired one who is
program specific. He is an authority in the field in which we are
working and has given us feedback and input for our project funded by the
grant. Do we need to have an evaluator for the overall operation of
the grant itself?

We named and budgeted for an
evaluator to do formative and summative evaluation in our original
proposal, but are wondering if there are "rules" about the
timing of such evaluations.
We intended for the evaluation
of the current year to occur after the conclusion of the year, as some of
our indicator information (enrollment, retention, etc.) won't be
available until that time. When I read Elena's note I began to wonder if
the evaluation needed to occur during the same fiscal year? And would the
final evaluation of the project need to occur before September 30 of the
final year of the grant, even if the data was not available when the
evaluation was done?
These are naive questions, I am
sure, so please be patient with me!
