As a GSA MOBIS contractor, the PPC offers a range of management and consulting services that can help agencies meet specific goals. The PPC is authorized to offer the following Special Item Numbers (SINs) under its GSA MOBIS contract:
874-1: Consulting Services
The diverse backgrounds and expertise of the Center’s faculty and staff enable us to provide team-based consulting services, customized to match the particular needs of a client. In particular, we have expertise in business/organizational development, strategic and action planning, evaluation, and training. The Center regularly conducts client-specific studies, analyses, and reports based on applied research (e.g., surveys, focus groups, interviews), culling from scholarly and gray literatures, and informed by stakeholder processes.
874-2: Facilitation Services
The Center’s facilitations have ranged from multi-day statewide facilitations of over one hundred participants to single-day, small (under 12 participants) facilitation experiences. The Center’s clients have included federal and state agencies, regional collaboratives, national associations, not-for-profit organizations, and others. Most the of the Center’s facilitation services have been with diverse teams and/or groups with common and divergent interests. Center staff typically follow consensus-building strategies in which they serve as neutral parties to ensure all participants have a voice and that the process is one in which, ultimately, participants equally share responsibility for decisions.
874-3: Survey Services
Center faculty and staff possess rigorous academic training and experience in applied survey services, have taught University and professional research design and analyses courses, and have had their work cited in nationally-published research methodology texts. The Center’s assigned lead researcher will work with the client to establish specific objectives and outcomes and to identify realistic timeframes for each step of the survey process. The team or staff assigned to the project will work to complete activities within agreed-upon timeframes and will consult with clients if there are meaningful variations to the schedule. Staff have worked with clients to: develop survey methodologies that complement other data collection activities; determine populations and sampling frames; assess what types of data are most appropriate (e.g., qualitative/ quantitative); research the applicability of validated surveys or create (design, pilot, refine) new surveys; determine the impact on human subjects; oversee all aspects of administration; collect and analyze the data; and work with the client in data interpretation. Staff are skilled in a broad range of parametric and nonparametric statistical analyses including those involving descriptive statistics, predictions and associations (correlations and linear regressions), inferential statistics, and test construction. Most quantitative analyses are done using SPSS and most qualitative using NUDIS*T.
874-7: Program Integration and Project Management Services
The Center brings high-level expertise in managing and integrating projects, from small to statewide and from short-term to multi-year. Most project management services start with developing a workplan with timelines, resource requirements, assignments, and milestones (e.g., GANTT charts). The Center’s past program integration and management services have included: managing the work of multiple committees and boards to achieve a common purpose, negotiating with sub-contractors, agenda-setting and convening meetings and conferences, developing informational materials, overseeing research, coordinating drafting and passage of legislation and administrative rule change, advising client at decision points, grant and contract writing, planning and implementing projects and programs, ensuring open communication among stakeholders, and evaluating process and outcome results.
