Program Management & Policy

Shaping public policy is a complex and multifaceted process with stakeholders competing and collaborating to influence decision-making. Program management involves planning, organizing, and managing resources to achieve specific project goals and objectives.

We work closely with our federal clients to spearhead all aspects of policy development and program management. Our team develops timelines and contingency plans and organizes and manages committees and governance structures.

Science and Health Policy Consulting Consortium (SHPCC)

Many consultants and small companies lack the past performance, business development expertise, and resources necessary to access and navigate the complexities of government contracting. Ripple Effect has established the Science and Health Policy Consulting Consortium (SHPCC) to create a path for federal agencies to access high-quality, credentialed and niche science and health policy experts—by using our resources to bring together and build a community of independent science, science policy and health policy consultants.
