Since 1991, Public Policy Associates (PPA) has worked with clients and partners to maximize the positive results of social policy. We engage as thought partners with those responsible for improving programs and outcomes. We seek out and listen to the voices of those impacted by policy decisions. We inform new approaches by synthesizing information within and across policy areas.
At PPA, our work is grounded in five core values:
Working together makes for deeper understanding and a better outcome. We practice this value through teamwork among staff, consultants, partners, and clients.
We view our work as a creative process, where each project is unique. We look for opportunities to apply a diverse set of tools and skills to our work.
Differences are an asset to our work and our world. To support greater equity, we continuously learn, identify disparities, and design inclusive approaches.
Having high standards means we plan well and deliver accurate, insightful work. Clients return to us for our customized approach and commitment to quality.
As researchers, we often handle sensitive information and recognize the trust placed in us by those we engage and assist. We act with honesty and transparency.
