IPA PROJECT DETAILS
Name of Your Organization
Include department if relevant, and location within larger organization, if relevant.
Project Description & Goals
What is the question you’re trying to answer or the problem you’re trying to solve? What
will be required of students? If the public policy dimension is not self-evident, please summarize it briefly.
NOTE: Please keep in mind two points
First, when proposing the project please note the timeframe and work effort available. Initial contacts and project scoping will begin in late January and the final report will be submitted in early May. Over the three months, each student will spend approximately 80-120 hours on their IPA project, which translates to roughly 300 to 450 hours per team, depending on whether there are 3 or 4 (or occasionally, 5) students on the team.
Second, IPA reports are not just research papers; they are intended to help clients make policy or program choices. Clients should be in a position to take action to address a problem, or directly influence those who will take action.
Please briefly describe the work of your organization/ department as it relates to the project.
In what way is your organization in a position to take action based on findings of the IPA?
