By applying a public policy named on “Chinese Central Public Finance Supporting Social Organizations on the Participation in Public Services in 2012” as the case study, three important components are found very important during the evaluation, namely social effects from the government, social organizations and the public. The finding reveals that the policy evaluation on purchasing public services should be a positive guidance on policy cycle as a new policy, while the government would not select new social organizations,but prefers to choose those they have already known or have a good relationship with them during purchasing process.
