Project Details

What We Need
  • A set of key metrics to regularly track
  • Spreadsheet tool to collect data on key metrics with accompanying tables and graphs for analysis
  • Training for best practices on data collection
  • Training on how to use the spreadsheet and analyze key metrics
  • Note: this does not include data entry or analysis of the data
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have two staff members that can support your work, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an existing data collection process, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

This work would streamline processes and make the work more efficient and easy to track. We currently collect data on meal orders and meal usage from our partners for two government meal service programs using three separate tracking sheets, which is duplicative.
