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 Family and Youth Services Bureau of the Administration on Children, Youth and Families contracted with Paltech to build capacity among those receiving government grants to provide abstinence education. Enhancements were needed in implementing sound business practices, evaluating training results, integrating current scientific findings in curricula, complying with Congressional standards, and communicating with constituent groups and media.
Solution: Paltech developed both technical assistance and capacity building plans, planned and managed three national conferences, each with approximately 400 participants, planned and executed more than 20 telephone conferences and webcasts, and five conference calls for prospective grantees. We produced evaluation reports for each event. We also provided media training for grantees through a subcontractor.
Result: All deliverables on this project have been and are being completed at or below projected cost, and events have been planned and executed in record time; one successful conference was held just three months after contract award.
