As SERC and the SERC Foundation embark on the implementation of a comprehensive grant writing strategy, proposals to identify qualified researchers/consultant(s)/service contractor(s) to provide comprehensive evaluation services are requested. This information will be used to pre-select evaluators who will, once selected, assist project leads with all aspects of designing and conducting program evaluation efforts to support the implementation of the specific strategies identified by grant-funded programs. Specifically, this includes being a critical thought partner and offering assistance and expertise in conducting pre-assessments and analyzing current conditions to identify specific program goals and outcomes with benchmark measures to monitor throughout the implementation process. This partnership during program development and implementation is essential in providing the program evaluator(s) with the specific information they will need to successfully propose models for evaluation and consequently producing in-depth and comprehensive reports compliant with each grant’s required content and specifications. SERC and the SERC Foundation, at our sole discretion, will make multiple awards based upon the pool of qualified applicants on an as-needed basis.
