How can we build a smarter government that delivers social impact at scale? Read our newest  publication, Smarter Government for Social Impact: A New Mindset for Better Outcomes, which outlines strategies for transforming the public sector and shifting billions of dollars in public spending to incentivize and pay for policies and programs that deliver outcomes.
