PIRE has long been recognized as a leader in the field of evaluation. Our work includes evaluation of programs related to public health, drug and alcohol abuse prevention, dependency treatment, tobacco use prevention, traffic safety, criminal justice, education and similarly critical public health issues. PIRE researchers evaluate programs on the international, national, state, and local levels. We are also adept at developing novel approaches to evaluation when more traditional approaches will not suffice. Often, our primary goal is to implement an evaluation that will provide actionable data for program staff so they can make data-driven decisions to enhance program effectiveness. PIRE has served as the evaluator for SAMHSA-funded grants awarded to numerous state agencies and tribal governments, including but not limited to the SPF-SIG, SPF-TIG, PFS, and SPF-Rx. We are currently working on SAMHSA-funded projects in Alabama, Idaho, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Vermont, and with the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians in Michigan. Our work also includes evaluations of school-based interventions, including recently awarded contracts to evaluate SAMHSA-sponsored Project AWARE grants in Indiana, South Carolina and South Dakota.
