Technical Assistance Approach

The Network uses the term "technical assistance" to refer to any form of "evidence-based help" that can better inform decision-making. Some examples of technical assistance the Network may offer include:

Timely issue briefs. Summaries of the current evidence answering the state decision-makers' questions, and identifying the experts on the subject.

Consulting arrangements. Hands-on assistance, confidential and behind-the-scenes if necessary, to a state decision-maker or team.

Testimony, workshops, and presentations. Forums to provide exposure to the current evidence in the field and dialogue on policy options.

Research design. Assistance in developing information-gathering strategies and analysis.

Secondary analysis.Taking existing research and analyzing it in light of a specific state policy concern.
