CIRS provides technical assistance for organizations and communities interested in improving their internal capacity to build successful collaborations, conduct research and evaluation and prepare funding proposals. We can provide training in a range of techniques, including survey design and administration, outcomes, focus groups and key informant interviews, logic modeling, data entry, and analysis. Our goal is to demystify the process for you, making what are often daunting and intimidating concepts and processes easy and accessible.
