Making Investing in What Works the "New Normal"
Results for America is helping decision-makers at all levels of government accelerate their use of evidence and data. Our mission is to make investing in what works the “new normal,” so that when government policymakers make decisions, they start by seeking the best evidence and data available, then use what they find to get better results. We accomplish this goal by: developing “standards of excellence” which highlight the government infrastructure necessary to be able to invest in what works; supporting policymakers committed to investing in what works; and enlisting champions committed to investing in what works.
