An emphasis on continuous improvement ensures ongoing development in the long-term.

Policy Analysis draws upon various tools to identify the impacts of existing or potential policy. Using a combination of surveys, interviews, focus groups, fiscal data, program records and/or documented best practices assures that stakeholders have the information necessary to make well informed decisions.


Evaluation is necessary to assure programs remain adaptive and successful, even in the face of change. With a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods, evaluation can not only be used to assess long-standing programs, but can also be helpful in developing new strategies or innovative pilots.
