In an era of historic budget deficits, program budgets are always at risk. Legislators are demanding evidence of results. Output metrics and narrative summaries no longer suffice. Agency administrators, evaluation officers and authorizing bodies want to know: what’s working and what’s not, what’s the ‘bang for the buck’, what overall impact are we having on communities, which grants are most effective, how can we benchmark, aggregate and roll-up our results?
Using Impact Genome's Impact Standards enables standardized outcomes reporting for all grants. Now you can view each grantee’s performance in a single scorecard. You can aggregate outcomes data at the program level, demonstrate total program impact and cost-per-outcome, and even benchmark your results against similar programs.
Improve the quality and confidence in your grantees’ impact data. Grantees can now self-report their outcomes using reliable, evidence-based standards into the Registry. Grantees can also access the world’s largest coded evidence base of research to improve their program design and find “closest matching” evaluations.
Risk isn’t just about financial risk — it’s about outcomes risk. Will your program produce the outcomes you expect? Program staff can review likelihood of success and evidence-quality for each grant before you approve funding. Compare proposals to industry Cost Per Outcome benchmarks to determine value for money.
