Staff Profile: Oscar Espinosa

Oscar Espinosa, M.A., Senior Associate, is an experienced Project Director with over 20 years of project management experience. His primary area of expertise is program evaluation, and has applied his knowledge of outcome/impact evaluation to design custom grant monitoring and management systems for federal and foundation clients. He has designed systems for the St. David’s Foundation, Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, Corporation for National and Community Service, and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. For these multi-year projects Mr. Espinosa facilitated needs assessments with staff and conducted document reviews and extensive literature reviews and environmental scans to identify metrics which appropriately gauge the funding agencies’ performance relative to their mission and strategic plan. The objective of building these systems is to help staff determine the extent to which their organization’s funding strategy is having the outcomes and impacts they were intended to achieve, and to learn what mid-course corrections need to be made to achieve their strategic goals. For these projects he led the development of various grantee data collection instruments and protocols which have been in operation for over a decade.
