Feasibility of PB&J Evaluation Options

This is a contract with PB&J Family Services and collaboration with individuals at the RAND Corporation (under separate contracts) to explore the feasibility of options for improving the internal evaluation process that PB&J Family Services uses and to propose new or modified data collection and evaluation strategies.  As part of the project, we will also be assessing the feasibility of establishing a “Policy Evaluation Lab” at UNM.  The mission of the Policy Evaluation Lab is:  Improve well-being of New Mexicans through better application of evaluation to inform policymaking.
