New Frontiers in Assessment Monitoring & Evaluation  -- What You Need to Know About New DoD Requirements
A DoD Policy directive issued in 2017 established policy and assigned responsibilities for conducting assessment, monitoring and evaluation (AM&E) in the area of security cooperation. The policy directive calls for collaborative evaluations across DoD components as well as with other USG Agencies and international partners to facilitate mutual learning and reduce cost.

At this event PSC members who work in Monitoring and Evaluation as well as those who work with DoD will hear from and network with key USG and issue experts. The event includes a keynote address by Mr. David A. Cate, the Director of Assessment, Monitoring & Evaluation in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The event will also host two discussion panels with AM&E experts from the U.S. government and industry practitioners from the Defense and Development spheres, and offer several networking opportunities with our speaker and panelists.
