Evaluation and compliance practices
have always been at the core of Solutient.

Dr. Robert Sternhell, Solutient’s founder and Chairman of the Board, implemented the strong evaluation and compliance practices you see today. As a professor in Public Management, he authored numerous articles on evaluation in addition to creating an evaluation course sequence for his students. He has been the lead on dozens of evaluation teams and has assembled a solid team of researchers and data analytics specialists.

Solutient’s team of experts have been providing these reports and performing evaluations and compliance studies for 50 years. As a proven leader in these areas, we continue to develop and evolve as subject matter experts in diverse areas. The key is our ability to apply techniques that effectively address the goals of each unique entity.
