What We Do
Strategic planning & consultation
ICF leverages the typical industry and domain proficiency and regulatory policy expertise of a traditional consulting firm. We apply our deep knowledge of market strategy and business operations, along with our experience in regulatory planning and compliance.
Comprehensive, end-to-end services
Our specialized teams execute every step of your project's life cycle, from program design to assessment and evaluation. Along the way, we'll optimize your program management, implement policy, and report program analysis and benchmarking.
Integrated, purpose-driven data
ICF sets the industry standard for surveys, pairing research and informatics expertise with robust data management and analysis capabilities. We break down and present the information you need to create large-scale change.
Cutting edge technology and customer experience
Our web and mobile deliverables are ultimately focused on enhancing user experiences; we make this possible with our unique ability to provide the back-end infrastructure necessary for complex, often transformative digital projects.
Outreach that drives behavior and outcomes
