Framework for Evaluating Systems Change Initiatives

The Systems Change Framework was developed to address the challenge of assessing and documenting systems change accomplishments of grantee organizations that vary considerably in terms of their intervention models, community contexts, partnership relationships, and knowledge of how to make systems change happen.

Systems Change is defined as changes in organizational culture, policies and procedures within individual organizations or across organizations that enhance or streamline access and reduce or eliminate barriers to needed services by a target population.
