Office of Evaluation Sciences at GSA

The Office of Evaluation Sciences (OES) is an interdisciplinary team that works across the federal government to help agencies answer top priority questions. We design and conduct evaluations of existing programs and evidence-based program changes. We use rigorous evaluation methods and administrative data to build and use evidence and learn what works.

To date, we have completed over 85 impact evaluations with over 20 federal agency collaborators. Our portfolio has spanned priority areas such as improving public health outcomes, increasing educational opportunity, promoting equity and economic recovery, and increasing access to benefits.
