Image of the cover of the Managing for Success report

The Forum for Youth Investment is excited to release a new report, Managing for Success: Strengthening the Federal Infrastructure for Evidence-based Policymaking. This report examines how the federal government creates and uses evidence to inform decision-making.

The report includes:

  • A working model of the building blocks for the federal infrastructure for evidence-based policymaking;
  • A landscape scan that presents a detailed status of each of these building blocks; and
  • Recommendations to strengthen the infrastructure by (1) integrating multiple types of evidence into decision-making processes, (2) elevating evaluation and (3) focusing on revenue-neutral approaches to scaling the use of evidence.

The report is designed to be complimentary to the work of the Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking, and was released on the same day that the Commission issued their report The Promise of Evidence-Based Policymaking. Both reports include recommendations for strengthening the evidence-building capacity within the federal government.
