Evaluation Units as Knowledge Brokers: testing and calibrating an innovative framework Evaluation Units as Knowledge Brokers: testing and calibrating an innovative framework

The article offers an empirically tested framework for the analysis of the role of evaluation units as knowledge brokers. It is based on a systematic, interdisciplinary literature review on knowledge brokering and empirical research of evaluation units in Poland with complementary evidence from a range of institutional context (US federal government and international organizations). The proposed framework transforms evaluation units from mere buyers of expertise and producers of isolated reports into animators of "reflexive social learning" that steer streams of knowledge to  decisionmakers.
