The Policy Information Center (PIC) is the repository of evaluations and short-term evaluative research and policy-oriented projects conducted by Health and Human Services (HHS); program inspections and audits conducted by the Office of Inspector General (HHS); projects relevant to HHS conducted by the Congressional Budget Office, General Accounting Office, and reports conducted by the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council's Committee on National Statistics, both part of the National Academy of Sciences. PIC collects the information in an on-line database (available from the PIC website), which contains administrative data and an abstract for the HHS-sponsored projects. The projects are monitored throughout the life of the study. The database can be searched either by our list of descriptors or a free text keyword search. The PIC also maintains a library of final reports and executive summaries and makes these available to Departmental personnel and others.
