The Center for Program and Policy Evaluation (CPPE) has been established in 2004 by expert's team in order to promote and to apply the progressive methods of regulatory impact assessment, performance measurement, results and outcomes evaluation of the public policies and programs, and wells as corporate and NGO’s programs evaluation.
The reasons of our choice are evident – Russia gradually joins the world discussion and world division of labour – it is therefore quite logical to turn to the industry of program & policy evaluation / regulatory impact assessment. Where political scientists use policy/program evaluation term, economists speak of regulatory burden pre-assessment and regulatory impact assessment (RIA), lawyers – of evaluation of legislation, managers and standardization specialists – of TQM and evaluation. Therefore the question of effectiveness/efficiency (to wide extent) – of pre-assessment, ongoing monitoring (controlling) and ex-post evaluation – needs to be discussed with specialists from different fields and disciplines.
The staff members of the Center are very experienced in applied projects on performance budgeting, field studies (electoral campaigns, market research, monitoring etc).
At the moment CPPE is working at a number of research activities, implement research scientific work in the field of RIA (independently and as associate contractors), evaluate the activities of scientific organizations and prepare financial and economical substantiations of technological standards for ålectric power industry.
CPPE supports a specialized non-commercial Internet-project Politanaliz.Ru
