IMPAQ International is currently assisting the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) of the U.S.
The objective of this five-year study was to provide the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) with a series of research studies on issues related to the operation and use of the Unemployment Insurance (UI) system.
All individuals, including people with disabilities, should have access to the full range of services offered by the public workforce system. For this project, IMPAQ assessed the accessibility of American Job Centers (AJCs) for people with disabilities and identified areas for improvement. Rather than focusing on legal compliance, our evaluation focused on participants’ experience of and ability to use, all aspects of service delivery.
The short-term compensation (STC) Program, also known as “work sharing”, provides an opportunity for employers to reduce layoffs by temporarily reducing the work hours of some employees and providing pro-rated unemployment insurance benefits to these workers to replace their lost or reduced wages.
IMPAQ International, with support from our subcontractor FHI-360, conducted an implementation evaluation of four grant programs awarded with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds by the Department of Labor (Energy Training Partnership Grants, Pathways out of Poverty Grants, State Energy Sector Partnership and Training Grants, and Healthcare and High Growth Training Grants).

IMPAQ supported the Employment and Training Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor by conducting a process study of the Job Corps program. The goal of the evaluation was to explore and identify center-level practices that are associated with high- and low- performing centers.
Each year, IMPAQ surveys 275,000 Medicare beneficiaries regarding their experiences with their health plans and their care providers. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses this data to plan stronger programs for Medicare participants and to create informational materials for participants’ use.
IMPAQ is using a mixed-mode approach to conduct this large-scale survey. First, we send a mail survey, and then our trained interviewers follow-up by phone with beneficiaries that did not respond.
