The problems addressed in this study are twofold: (1) the lack of information about evaluation frameworks in arts administration literature for use in decision making, and (2) the limited availability of appropriate existing evaluation models for the multisite nonprofit arts organizations. Through the development of a context-based evaluation framework, the present study investigated the theoretical and methodological aspects of evaluation models currently used in community arts service organizations. A target population, Very Special Arts Florida, was identified to illustrate the complexity of evaluation in a multisite nonprofit arts organization
The case study methodology utilized a systems perspective and systems theory in evaluation to develop multisite self reports. This evaluation system was designed to function by supplying information specific to each site, yet generalizable to the statewide organization. It was intended to serve as a framework for stakeholders anticipatory decision making. In this methodology the instrument attempted to facilitate information processing for the complex staff structure of nonprofit organizations with multiple hierarchies of leadership and interdependence for resource development
