Advancing Collaborative Evaluation (ACE) Network

2017 Call for Qualifications to the Advancing Collaborative Evaluation (ACE) Network is Open! Deadline is extended to Friday, October 27.
The Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Research, Evaluation, Evidence and Data Unit is now actively soliciting qualifications of evaluators and small evaluation firms with leadership from historically underrepresented racial and ethnic groups with evaluation expertise in areas including juvenile justice, child welfare, family economic opportunity, community change, education, environment, public health, immigration and other program areas. Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply to be entered into a database for funders to consult when seeking evaluation services. In a future phase of the ACE Network, the database will be made available online for organizations to publicly access when seeking evaluation services.

You or your firm may apply as an “independent evaluator,” a “university/college-affiliated evaluation researcher” or an “evaluation firm.” In each category, applicants must reside in the United States and be from a historically underrepresented racial or ethnic group. We are also accepting applications from principal investigators who are employed at a firm. Please check “independent evaluator” in the application, and identify your title and firm affiliation in your cover letter. In each category, applicants must reside in the United States and be from a historically underrepresented racial or ethnic group.
Please go to to access the online application form. Please see full details on this opportunity here.

Current members of the ACE Network do not need to reapply. Applications are due on Friday, October 27, 2017.
Keecha Harris and Associates, Inc. (KHA, Inc.) is overseeing the Call for Qualifications (CFQ) application, review and selection process. For more information on the CFQ to the ACE Network, please contact Sara Padilla at
