Someone has to make sure government is improving every day.

That's Us.

Commitment. Integrity. Leadership.

Californians turn to us because our reports create a catalyst for positive change. After months of hard work analyzing facts and data, you'll find the members of our teams at the Capitol briefing legislators, answering questions from the media, or at local school board or town hall meetings helping decision makers and the public understand their options for solving problems. People trust what we say because our reports are unbiased and originate from an objective evaluation of the evidence we collect. Untangling problems and getting to the truth takes grit. Figuring out how to solve complex problems takes creativity. And achieving our mission takes teamwork and a desire for constant improvement. That's who we are.

"We make recommendations to help government provide high-quality, efficient, and equitable access to services for all Californians. We evaluate complex problems and recommend actionable solutions."

Influence Positive Change.

When decision makers act on our recommendations, real change happens. Because of our work, children have improved access to preventative health care, more California students were admitted to our public universities, and local governments are in better positions to respond to disease outbreaks. We also make recommendations to government agencies that help them to better serve the public.

Find the right position for you.
