CP is proud to have been awarded a contract with the DoD’s Defense Human Resources Activity (DHRA) for Civilian Workforce Learning. CP provides focused, comprehensive research and evaluation strategies in order to support a strategic learning framework and provide actionable methodologies for application within the DoD civilian workforce. This includes recommending holistic frameworks and measures for evaluating civilian training, education, and professional development activities. The project’s scope is to identify evaluation criteria, ways to prioritize future learning investments being considered, mechanisms for minimizing duplication of effort and resource inefficiencies, and measures that can be used as ROI/ROE criteria and specifications.

This project inherently involves a robust, evidence-based research agenda: exploring and showcasing best practices across government and industry; contextualizing those research findings for the DoD civilian workforce; conducting appropriate research to discover context-rich experiences highlighting where evaluation practices can be especially beneficial and to assess and validate where statistically significant evaluation opportunities exist; and illustrate ROI/ROE techniques by showcasing proven methodologies.
