The Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (Evidence Act) now requires federal agencies to engage in strategic planning for research and evaluation by developing evidence-building plans, or learning agendas. With initial implementation of the Evidence Act now underway for two years, a new resource is available for agencies seeking to develop meaningful, useful, and user-centric learning agendas that identify data needs, evaluation priorities, and more. Data Foundation representatives recently published a new resource in partnership with the IBM Center for The Business on Government entitled “Making Federal Agencies Evidence-Based: The Key Role of Learning Agendas.”
During this one-hour virtual event on March 9, co-hosted with the IBM Center for The Business of Government, the co-authors provided an overview of the Evidence Act’s new requirement, discuss successful models in existence, and present an innovative approach for developing learning agendas while bridging the gaps between researchers and policymakers.
