ARPE Services: Management-Focused Research

Leaders of federal, state, and local organizations are increasingly invested in the use of data to inform program management and decision making. At the same time, they may have more to manage, an increased need for up-to-date knowledge of their programs, and an extraordinary amount of information to process. We build our research designs and deliverables with an understanding of the goals and needs of our clients, focusing our methods and project schedules around delivering accurate information, in a timely manner, and in the right format for the intended audience.

Our goal is to deliver clear, actionable program feedback through the development of studies that support our clients’ management needs. By providing ongoing performance feedback, including assessment of implementation and immediate outcomes, we help clients gain important insight into their organization’s successes and challenges. We outline and deliver our findings through in-person stakeholder presentations, summary management briefs, and thorough reports, giving clients the insight and detail required for strategic decision making.
