Periodic evaluation of the national NF can be an important and valuable activity used to determine:
- whether the objectives of the NF have been met and what impact has been achieved;
- the strengths and weaknesses of the NF; and
- the reasons for success or failure of the NF.
Information gathered from a well-conducted evaluation can be useful for correcting problems and optimizing the performance of the NF.
