The Early Childhood Council Leadership Alliance hired Annette Shtivelband and Research Evaluation Consulting (REC) through a competitive bid process to improve our data quality and evaluation strategies, develop better systems for collecting, managing, and utilizing data, strengthen our evaluation capacity, and become a data-centered organization. Annette and her team have done a wonderful job of gathering complex information from diverse and sometimes conflicting sources.
