Dr. Gritz has over 25 years of experience in directing and managing demonstrations, evaluations, research, and technical assistance projects designed to improve the economic and other outcomes affecting the well-being of targeted populations participating in a wide range of health, education, employment, training, and other human services programs. This includes over 15 years of corporate management experience and over 18 years of experience in managing delivery and task order contracts to rapidly respond to research and analysis needs of Federal, state, and local government agencies. Dr. Gritz also has over 20 years of experience designing and implementing comprehensive program evaluations of health, education, labor market, and welfare programs at the national, state and local levels. Many of these projects have involved participants from priority populations including low-income families, Medicaid and welfare recipients, youth, veterans and other targeted populations, sponsored by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, United States Department of Labor, and related agencies. These projects have utilized methodologies appropriate to address public policy questions using the most scientifically rigorous methods—including classical experimental methods, quasi-experimental methods, and matched comparison group strategies—and have involved primary and secondary data collection activities. Dr. Gritz has extensive experience working jointly with program staff, policy makers, and advisory groups to translate research and evaluation results into practical solutions that address programmatic needs and facilitate continuous program improvements. This includes assistance in strategic planning, the development and implementation of outcomes based management and the design of performance measurement systems in a variety of human services program areas including welfare, health services, employment, and education programs.
