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.
