Research and Evaluation + Compliance Monitoring
ICF has extensive experience conducting program monitoring and evaluating processes and outcomes, as well as supporting development and implementation of program improvement plans locally, nationally, and internationally. Evaluation systematically assesses the effectiveness of a program or initiative in achieving its goals, meeting the need for accountability and supporting decisions about how best to use resources and provide services. ICF provides the most appropriate and cost-effective designs, including quick turnaround projects to meet critical time constraints, interim reporting to provide useful feedback, and data analysis and interpretation services to help translate evaluation findings into practice.
Organizational Capacity Solutions
ICF works with professionals serving vulnerable populations to provide the latest research findings and proven policy, practice, and program innovations. Proven prevention and support programs can have lifelong impacts for families experiencing violence, abuse, mental health, substance abuse issues, joblessness or homelessness. Our consultants maintain strong relationships with professional colleagues in both public and private sectors, allowing us ready access to a wider pool of experts in various fields for systemic and cross-cutting approaches to complex challenges. We work with federal, state, and local governments and with grantees in urban, rural, and tribal settings, as well as Alaskan Native Villages, to strengthen families in the United States.
