Summary

Arguably one of the United States' hallmark public sector research programs, the Advanced Technology Program (ATP) aims to assist US business in creating and applying new technologies in order to maintain a competitive edge in a rapidly changing world economy. Delivering a unique, systematic analysis of a public agency’s pioneering intramural research program, this book presents the first detailed case study of ATP, and provides a methodological illustration of how other public organizations should conduct such an evaluation.

With an increasing number of public sector agencies and institutions undertaking program assessments in light of growing public accountability, this book will be of great interest to academics and researchers in economics, as well as policy makers involved in program evaluation.
