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.
