The Office of Policy Analysis provides leadership and coordination on statistics and evidence for the Department. The Director serves as the Department's Statistical Official, working closely with the Chief Data Officer and the Evaluation Officer to cultivate a culture of evidence, develop evidence-based decision-making policies, and more. The Department's Data Governance Board was established pursuant to the Evidence Act and provides a place for the Evidence Act principals and representatives from bureaus and offices to carry out our "evidence agenda."
Want to get involved? Interior employees should reach out to their bureau or office evidence leads or the Office of Policy Analysis, PPA.
