The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) was tasked with conducting an evaluation of Service Delivery Improvement Plans (SDIPs) that were implemented during the cycles of 2012???2015 and 2015???2018. The evaluation included the retrospective development of a Theory of Change (ToC) Model for the SDIPr and a review of SDIPs across national and provincial government departments during the two cycles. The evaluation thus assessed the quality of SDIPs in respect of their relevance to fulfil the intended outcomes; and the effectiveness; efficiency and sustainability of their implementation.
