The Program Performance and Planning (PPP) group advances a culture of learning, strategic program development, and data-driven performance management in pursuit of that mission and vision. PPP partners with program managers to select and develop new interventions, analyze and interpret data, assess model fidelity and program effectiveness, apply learning from data analysis and feedback into program improvement efforts, and develop program resources to strengthen operations and service delivery.

About the Position
