Design and evaluate program changes
We work with agency partners to apply evidence from the social and behavioral sciences to change how the program works or how it’s implemented, and evaluate its impact.
Evaluate existing programs
We work with agency partners to design and conduct an evaluation to measure the impact of a program.
Provide technical assistance on evaluation design
We work with agency partners to design an evaluation to measure the impact of an existing program or an evidence-based program change.
Become an Agency Partner
OES helps agencies build and use evidence to learn what works. First, we look to our agency partners to identify priority areas where they would like to see improved outcomes. Next, we work closely together to learn how people process information, make decisions, and interact with government programs.
What makes an opportunity a good fit for an OES collaboration?
- You have an important question related to an established policy priority
- You are already collecting data on the program and outcome of interest
- The program or program change has potential for significant impact
- Your agency is interested in acting on and sharing results
- The program operates on a large scale or with many people
- There is the ability to give groups of people different versions of a program or program change
If this sounds like you, please get in touch! We’re excited to work with agency partners across government. The structure of our collaborations can vary but often follow one of several common partnership formats.
