IEc is a recognized national leader in the field of environmental performance measurement and program evaluation, and has been nominated twice for the American Evaluation Association's Ava and Gunnar Myrdal Government Evaluation Award.

IEc has extensive experience working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), state environmental agencies, and non-governmental organizations to:

  • Map out a program's theory of change using logic models;
  • Develop and implement performance measurement strategies;
  • Design and conduct multiple types of evaluations;
  • Develop measurement and evaluation guidance and tools; and
  • Conduct training on measurement and evaluation issues.
Performance measurement and program evaluation can help program staff gather evidence about strategies that work, assess their results, and adapt their programs to be more effective over time. Measurement and evaluation have become essential tools for managing increased expectations for good governance, accountability, and efficient use of resources.
