The Center for Public Program Evaluation is an evaluation and policy development firm focused on helping public programs work efficiently and effectively. We offer a full line of support to policy makers and program managers of governments, foundations, and other public entities to enhance their programs and improve services and outcomes for the people they serve.
Our Center does this through our unique experience and mastery of the three mechanisms through which public programs are established, directed, and renewed.
