Econometrica Completes Grand Rounds Contract

Econometrica provided technical support, developed assessment questions, surveyed participants, and provided quarterly reports for the CMS Grand Rounds series.

Bethesda, MD, October 2018
In July, Econometrica completed 4 years of work on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Grand Rounds project, which supported CMS’ live Grand Rounds presentations through a variety of technical support and reporting services. The Grand Rounds project serves as a stellar example of Econometrica’s extensive capabilities in the learning, training, and diffusion spaces. The Grand Rounds series convenes a group of nationally recognized experts to deliver informational presentations for CMS employees on current initiatives and innovative approaches in healthcare and healthcare policy. The presentations focus on programs that target CMS’ triple aims of improving healthcare. The Econometrica Team’s specific project work encompassed support of the web-based transmission of live Grand Rounds presentations for virtual participants by conducting webinars and providing technical support for pre-, post-, and live event activities. The team delivered attendance data and analysis reports after Grand Rounds events and reviewed event recordings for posting on the CMS website. Econometrica received high praise from CMS on all aspects of our work, as noted in the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting evaluation: “With customer service being a focal point for Econometrica and a real strength of theirs, their overall business behavior was outstanding. They were responsive to feedback and embodied the flexibility needed to be most responsive to changing CMS needs.” Congratulations to the team for a job well done!

Econometrica Wins Option Year 2 of USDA Foods Trend Analysis Project

Econometrica Wins Option Year 2 of USDA Foods Trend Analysis Project

BETHESDA, MD The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), has awarded the Econometrica Team a second option year on the USDA Foods Trend Analysis project that will run through September 2019. This study examines the types and amounts of food ordered through USDA Foods and USDA U.S. Department of Defense Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (USDA DoD Fresh) under the National School Lunch Program.

During the first option year, the Econometrica Team conducted comprehensive descriptive analyses of the types of products ordered and order patterns through USDA Foods and USDA DoD Fresh at the national and State levels for school years (SYs) 2014–2015, 2015–2016, and 2016–2017. This work involved cleaning and assembling program administrative data, conducting analysis using SAS and Tableau, and producing a report on the findings. We developed infographics on ordering patterns for FNS program marketing and information dissemination purposes. In addition, the team developed an interactive Tableau-based dashboard for FNS and States to use in program monitoring. The dashboard contains detailed information on multiple data points that we analyzed over the course of this contract.

In the second option year, the project is expanding to include two additional years of order data (SYs 2013–2014 and 2017–2018). The project includes new analysis of USDA Foods processor inventory levels over the course of the school year to inform FNS about patterns in processor compliance with program inventory limits. We will also develop new infographics and update the Tableau dashboard with the new data. Congratulations to all on the win!
