IMPAQ International is currently assisting the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) of the U.S. Department of Labor in developing approaches to evaluate the impact of the technical assistance the agency provides to recipients of its formula grant programs, as well as its competitively awarded grant programs.  Activities being conducted as part of this study include the development of a logic model and framework for understanding the process of technical assistance creation and provision at ETA; the development of sample performance indicators for assessing technical assistance outcomes in the short-term; and the development of an evaluation design that could be employed in conducting a future, formal impact evaluation of ETA’s technical assistance activities.
