Many not for profit organisations continue to show disappointing performances in the areas of performance measurement and evaluation, as evidenced by empirical research. However, what research that has been done in this area is small and needs to be performed on a much larger scale and depth. This research is in a transitionary stage as a result of empirical research that is currently underway in the New Zealand Not For Profit Sector by the author. This paper will introduce some of the important issues that need further investigating in the areas of performance measurement and evaluation to assist the non-profit sector in being a dynamic and sustainable force in the third sector that it occupies. Some of these issues under the microscope will include competency problems, the increasing funder demands for information concerning the nonprofits evaluation of their programmes, the level of commitment of non-profit organisations to evaluation and performance measurement and the level of support especially funding provided to those non-profits that carry out performance measurement and evaluation.
