At AISP we’re passionate about making government work better, faster and smarter. Collectively, our aim is to foster the development and use of integrated data systems in order to answer the critical policy and program questions of “what works,” “for whom,” and at “what cost.” We realize that establishing useful integrated data systems necessitates the careful consideration of legal, ethical, scientific, and economic issues. The AISP staff are devoted to furthering the thoughtful use of IDS to maximize program and policy outcomes in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
