External information is commonly collected for, and provided to, evaluation stakeholders without giving due consideration to their precise needs. As a result, evaluation resources are often inefficiently consumed and the impact of the evaluation process is diminished. The External Information Search and Formatting (EISF) process is a new approach that seeks to avoid such an outcome. This tool requires that the information searcher collaboratively work with his or her stakeholders to ensure that their informational needs are well met and the information is presented in a manner that is useful to them.
