Program Evaluation & Evidence Registry (PEER)

Program evaluation is a performance management tool that helps programs identify how and why results are being achieved. Programs then use that evidence for continuous improvement. PEER features research conducted by SBA programs and others in order to:

  • Help answer the question, “What works in small business assistance programs?”
  • Make those answers broadly available so that program managers, policymakers, researchers, and the public can make evidence-based decisions.

To submit your research, please email SBA’s Lead Program Evaluator, Terell Lasane, Ph.D., at terell.lasane@sba.gov.
