THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. 

In the final days of 2018, Congress passed the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act providing the most significant changes to the federal government’s data and evaluation infrastructure in a generation. The legislation implements half of the recommendations from the U.S. Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking, including key provisions to strengthen privacy protections, improve secure access to government data, and enhance government’s evidence capacity. Join BPC’s experts to learn what the bill means for the American public, the effectiveness of government, and opportunities for evaluators and researchers.
