Check this out! Evidence for Democracy is assembling a network of experts

Evidence for Democracy is assembling a network of experts to monitor and report on the use of evidence in government decisions.

The network will enhance transparency and government accountability by creating a public archive of decisions, with data to support independent assessments of the track record of government decision-making at all levels of government.

Using a standard “incident reporting form”, network members will submit cases and decisions, and evaluate the extent to which they are informed by evidence. Cases could include statutory amendments or legal reform, policy changes, or administrative decisions that:

Enhance or reduce the role of scientific evidence, Enable or impede the flow of scientific information to the public, or Are consistent or inconsistent with the best available evidence. The information gathered by the network will contribute to the public archive, and inform the development of E4D’s public outreach and advocacy campaigns.

You can find more information on E4D’s website.
