Survey design was used in the investigation and random sampling techniques was used to select 350 subjects from five sectors of the economy as well as twenty researchers from Univeristy of Ibadan and NISER, while a research and evaluation communication scale was used for data collection. The data were analyzed using descriptive and correlation statistics. The results shows that there was no significant relationship between the number of evaluation and researches conducted and thier communication to users. It also shows that most researchers embark on research and evaluation promotion purpose while the findings of those evaluation and research are disseminated through seminars, conferences and journals.
