I understand that people seldom commission an evaluation without a specific reason, but sometimes an administrator may use program evaluation as a ploy to postpone or avoid deciding, is such reason desirable?

Not really. Some reasons for evaluation are undesirable, especially when administrators know what decision they will make but commission a program evaluation solely to give their decision legitimacy. In such a case, you may try to help them develop better reasons if possible.
