Grants-based Evaluations

Organizations often require evaluation services as part of a grant-funded project or initiative. Sponsors typically insist on having the project evaluated by an objective party–an Independent Evaluator—and this is where SSI can help.  

In addition to conducting the program evaluation, SSI will design the evaluation for public and private grants.  In some case, this service will be provided gratis when built-in for a minimum of 10% of the grant.
