There are many different types of evaluation. But evaluative frameworks are becoming increasingly elaborated: accountancy frameworks to include social/environmental accounting; public sector priorities now objectified and measurable with advent of NPM. Thus social economy organisations are increasingly required to play this game. But the way they need to play it is conditioned by the sector they operate within and the governance systems that operate therein; and taking a resource dependency view, by the resources that they are most concerned with acquiring.
