Over the years Paltech has successfully competed for opportunities to manage government programs both in the US and abroad. Often these programs are related to aspects of our core function, education and training … finding innovative ways to maximize an organization’s human capital and enhance individuals’ productivity and job performance.
Challenge: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Head Start (OHS) needed technical assistance to improve Head Start programs nationwide by facilitating the adoption of best practices, identifying new initiatives in early childhood development, and recommending action. Paltech was selected to serve as the National Resource Center (now known as the Head Start Resource Center) established to accomplish these objectives.
Solution: Paltech has provided technical guidance, produced 35 publications, performed myriad special projects, written analyses and reports on early childhood development and education, created an array of training materials, and planned and managed eight major institutes and more than 100 smaller meetings for groups ranging from a half-dozen to nearly 4,000.
Result: Based on our performance, particularly in the realms of materials development and conference management (reviews have earned Paltech ratings of "6" on a five-point scale), Paltech was successful on two subsequent contract competitions with the HHS ACF Office of Head Start.
