Program Assistance

The Social Science Branch (SSB) does not have a primary research budget available for agency-wide competition in calling for proposals. As a result, technical assistance requests should be submitted with this in mind. SSB can assist in managing social science projects, prioritizing needs and approaches, developing of research and analysis, and peer review processes. Submit a STAR request under 'Social Science and Visitor Use.'

Importantly, SSP manages an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for socioeconomic research and analysis with Resource Systems Group, Inc. This contract provides easy-access for all bureaus within the Department of the Interior to obtain a full array of high quality social science research and analyses, with optional assistance from SSP. Contact the Social Science Branch for more information on this program.
