We currently provide comprehensive technical assistance, resource development, grant monitoring and evaluation, and grantee support across several large federal contracts.
As a small and nimble business, we have the advantage of integrating an in-house approach to multiple tasks. We are independently capable of directing and monitoring complex projects and are also able to benefit from our relationships with larger firms and national subject matter experts to leverage additional content expertise.

Office of Career, Technical & Adult Education
For the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE), we summarized adult education research to create a framework for a four-year research plan. We convened subject matter experts and federal agency partners to support the development of research questions and methodological approaches. We also identified potential opportunities for collaboration and coordination across Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) partner programs.
Investing in Innovation (i3) Conference
For the past four years, we’ve managed the annual Investing in Innovation (i3) conference, which includes the coordination of more than 1,500 attendees and planning of over 90 breakout sessions, content development and facilitation for several and facilitation of sessions for each conference, creating a dedicated smartphone app, conference document production, and arranging travel and lodging accommodations for attendants.
Center for Educator Effectiveness
We provided content expertise in conducting needs assessment and providing webinars for existing and future Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grantees. The U.S. Department of Education’s (ED) TIF program focuses on reforming state and district human capital management, educator evaluation, and compensation systems to improve student achievement. The TIF program is intended to ensure that the most effective teachers and principals are serving where they are needed most, and, ultimately, to improve teaching and learning in the classroom.

We are currently producing creative materials for the Institute of Educational Sciences Regional Education Laboratory (REL) Southwest with the American Institutes for Research (AIR). We are assisting with producing creative materials such as:
- Blog articles on topics like the Southwest School Improvement (SWSI) Research Partnership, and
- Videos, animations, and infographics discussing new REL Southwest research.
We are also assisting with developing a series of webinars for policymakers and practitioners in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas on topics affecting their region.
